Planning Preparation Assessment Team

PPA 2018

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).

During PPA time, classes are supported as follows:

Mr Latham, Miss O’Reilly and Mr Wilson are the school’s PE and sports coaches and have regular contact with each class, teaching elements of the national curriculum for physical education and supporting teacher professional development. In partnership with Mr Marshall, who maintains a strategic overview of PE and our provision for children, our sports coaches ensure that the school’s sporting provision is planned to meet the needs of all children.

Mrs Slaymaker, currently covering Mrs Graimes’ maternity leave, is the school’s music and performing arts co-ordinator. In addition to teaching the music national curriculum, Mrs Slaymaker leads weekly singing assemblies and organises musical events across the school. She also ensures 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. With a focus on spiritual, moral, social and cultural education.

Mrs McAuley, who has recently returned from a two-year sabbatical in France, teaches French across the school in
partnership with class teachers.
