2016/17 Research groups

Our school is a member of the James Montgomery Trust [JMAT]. A core principle of the trust is to maintain an outward looking approach to educational practice. Through collaboration with a range of partners, research is used so that innovative classroom practice gives the children the chance to achieve their potential.

The Outcomes from 2016/17 Research groups

· There is a new reading assessment system which will be used across Jmat schools.

· The school uses a structured system of Lexile levels so that reading texts include appropriate challenge.

· The school uses project based learning based on questions the children will want to investigate.

· In mathematics, the children engage with challenge-based learning to apply their thinking in real-life contexts.

· Staff have a greater understanding of the qualities of the fast grasping pupils in mathematics and the learning behviours they show.

· There is an SEND offer written by all the Jmat schools.
