Areas for Improvement identified were:
? Some of the disadvantaged pupils who missed phonics learning during the COVID 19 pandemic are not catching up quickly enough with the reading curriculum. As a result, these pupils do not read fluently enough by the end of key stage 1. Leaders should ensure that these pupils are provided with intensive support to catch up quickly so that they can read with confidence and automaticity.
? In some subjects leaders have not clearly identified what key knowledge they want pupils to learn . As a result , some pupils do not remember some of the essential building blocks for future learning. Leaders should ensure that they more carefully define what they want pupils to know in these subjects so that pupils remember more of the taught curriculum.
? Prior to the COVID 19 pandemic, the attendanc e of some pupils was too low. The pandemic has made this situation even worse. As a result, a small group of pupils are missing too much of their education. Leaders should ensure that they tackle the persistent absence of pupils with tenacity in order to bring about more rapid changes in attendance.
