West Moors Middle School
Objective 1: Improve pupils’ understanding of and respect for people from different cultures.
Why we have chosen this objective: 89% of our pupils are White British and 3% speak English as an additional language. We therefore lack diversity within our community and acknowledge our responsibility as a school to ensure that pupils are provided with opportunities to learn about people with different cultures, languages and beliefs.
To achieve this objective we plan to: Create opportunities for our pupils to learn directly from people and groups who come from or have specialist knowledge/experience of different cultures in order to promote increased understanding and respect.
Objective 2: Reduce the gap between girls and boys achieving the expected standard in mathematic in KS2.
Why we have chosen this objective: Our 2019 KS2 SATs results showed a gap between the percentage of boys achieving the expected standard in mathematics (83%) and the percentage of girls (67%). Nationally, the gap between boys and girls is insignificant – 78% of boys achieving the expected standard compared with 79% of girls.
To achieve this objective we plan to: Ensure pupil progress meetings identify girls who are not making expected progress and allocate resources accordingly. SLT to review math provision to ensure that it is not disadvantaging girls.
