Doing the ‘Write’ Thing

Blakehill Primary is a larger than average community school in the North East of Bradford. Our Ofsted inspection in 2007 noted strengths but stressed that standards in Numeracy & Literacy needed improvement.

A commitment to raising standards was boosted by rigorous and regular tracking of pupil performance. Sharply focused staff training was delivered to improve subject knowledge and expertise. Teachers were involved in pupil progress meetings to discuss each child’s performance and strategies were devised to address under achievement. All children have their own writing portfolio where their progress can be tracked. In addition, children are given regular quality feedback identifying what they do well and have individual targets so they know how to further improve.
