Challenge around Outcomes in Early Years, Phonics and the new curriculum


Under the new OfSTED schedule, governors are aware of increased expectations around outcomes in Early Years.  There are similar pressures to raise attainment in the Phonics Standard for Year Ones.  Governors are also monitoring closely how the school is progressing with regard to attainment against the new curriculum which reports for the first time this summer.
