Autumn half term 2

Y1 staff team



Alongside this resource there is an additional catch-up plan in place across school. Details of this can be found below.

Additional provision for the Autumn term

The additional provision of teachers across school is the result of a review of PPA provision and a redeployment of staff to meet specific needs. There is no additional cost to the school budget to provide this.

  • Additional teachers have been allocated to y6/5 and 4 each morning to provide for target pupils and teach small group English and maths each day of the autumn term. The children have full access to their year group curriculum but it is personalised to meet individual needs.
  • Y3 each afternoon has an additional teacher to run specific pre and post teaching sessions, to run speech and language sessions and targeted intervention sessions.
  • An additional teacher is in y2 twice a week to enable intervention in y2 to be led by a teacher. This provides x2 afternoons per week with a specific focus on reading, writing and number.
  • An additional teacher is in y1 three mornings a week to ensure smaller group teaching and learning sessions each morning, with a focus on phonics and number. 
  • Following a double bubble closure, two additional staff have been allocated to FS2 to increase the staff:pupil ratio. This has enabled school to increase the number of bubbles within the year group bubble and provide an additional outside learning area.

Curriculum offer

We are offering the full curriculum across school. Time allocations for subjects have been amended in different year groups according to identified needs, but no curriculum areas have been withdrawn. Mornings have been dedicated to English, Maths and RE. The afternoons to the wider curriculum.
