Planning Preparation Assessment Team
Our PPA team...
Each week, our year group teams meet for one morning or one afternoon, to plan, prepare and assess the effectiveness of teaching and learning sequences and the progress that the children are making. This is referred to as planning, preparation and assessment time (PPA) -
an entitlement for all teaching staff.
During PPA time, teaching and learning is supported as follows.
Mrs Gough is the school’s PE and sport co-ordinator. She has regular contact with each class and teaches elements of the national curriculum for physical education.
Mrs Gough organises extra-curricular sporting events and opportunities, and these are open to all children who attend our school.
Mrs Graimes is the school’s music and performing arts co-ordinator.
In addition to teaching the national curriculum for music, Mrs Graimes supports weekly singing assemblies and organises musical events across the school.
She has also ensured that our children continue to have an opportunity to learn the recorder in Year 3 – a follow on from Stanford Infant School.
Mr Richards, as well as being a talented artist and avid supporter of the Children’s Parade, has a passion for religious education (RE) – a statutory requirement.
Mr Richards leads regular Wednesday assemblies. His work supports the children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural education.
