Subject Leadership

Subject leaders play an important part in the success of the curriculum by leading a regular programme of monitoring, evaluation and review and the celebration of good practice contributes to the ongoing commitment to evolve and improve further.

The role of the Subject Leader and/or team is to:

  • Provide a strategic lead and direction for the subject.
  • Support and advise colleagues on issues related to the subject.
  • Monitor pupils’ progress in that subject area.
  • Provide efficient resource management for the subject.
  • Keep up-to-date with developments in their key area of learning at both national and local levels.
  • Monitor how their subjects are taught through triangulation.
  • Review the way the subjects are taught in the school and plan for improvement linking to whole school priorities.
  • Lead sustainable improvement through supporting colleagues and others.
  • Evaluate teaching and learning, and assessment within their subjects.
  • Have a secure awareness of the schemes of work for EYFS, KS1 and KS2.
  • Report to the Principal on the strengths and areas for development of the subject and the strategies for improvement.

Partnership with Families

We very much value the partnership we have in learning with families helping to develop children’s learning at home too. To further support this we hold Meet the Teacher evenings at the start of each academic year where parents and carers have an opportunity to meet the professionals who care for their children, find out the programme of learning for the year, routines for the week and also ways in which they can support with homework. We have also invested in an online Pupil world for maths which the children will have access to in and outside of school. This pupil world enables an online homework to be set and is complete with help videos for parents ensuring consistency in the approaches taught in school and reinforced at home. As well as this the more formal Parents Evenings are held twice a year in the Autumn and Spring and a written report is sent home towards the end of the Summer term. We also hold Learning Events which are open afternoons where the children share with parents the learning they have been taking part in with an opportunity to teach the adults. Children also perform in a class assembly three times a year and hold a prayer service which parents are encouraged to attend. As well as these more formal opportunities, we adopt an open doors policy and always encourage parents and carers to see us regularly with any questions or concerns more informally.
