Snodland C of E Primary School – Pathways to Progress – Case Study

About the school:

Snodland CEP School is a Voluntary Aided Primary school for children aged 4 to 11 years. The school currently has 410 pupils on roll and is organised into two Foundation Stage classes and two classes for every year group – 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.

Most of the children come from the immediate catchment area, which is a mixture of owner-occupied homes and social housing.

Number on roll: 410

Number of classes: 14

Mastery Approach: 

We currently use P2P for small groups of children and it is mainly delivered by TAs but class teachers will deliver at least one session a week.

P2P is used for those children working below age related expectations every day in English.

Planning is tweaked to ensure that it falls in line with the whole class text being used for English.

The Impact: 

Children are more engaged due to the range of activities provided throughout the sessions. The writing outcomes for most children have improved a lot and children are beginning to progress through the pre key stage standards at a quicker rate.

What would you say to other schools? 

If using the texts that the planning is written for, the implementation is quick and easy. If you are tweaking so that it is inline with the class text, that is a little more difficult and will create extra workload.

It is important to be honest about your data and really ‘drill’ down into what the children can do before selecting the P2P year group/module to implement.
