All had bespoke action plansFOOD, CHARITY DAYS, CURRICULUM
Flexibility of school meals (quantity, menus, ingredients) clarified with schools catering. Kitchen staff no longer highlight FSM childrens names in pink highlighter as they receive their dinner. Packed lunches and hot dinner children can sit together. FSM pupils can have a grab bag if they dont want hot food. Hot dinners allowed to sit outside on hot days at picnic benches; packed lunches cant sit on field. Any move to packed lunch queried. Set up 50p breakfast clubs.One weekly token for fruit at play time.Reassess how things are sold in school, such as hot dogs at break.Reassessing advertising for UIFSM take up.Allow secondary school pupils to use FSM money to buy bacon butties at break.
Number of charity days per year limited children to vote which.
Non-uniform is not the event; pupils to do something to earn the sponsorship.
School to allocate prizes for fund raising so the most amount raised doesnt always win.
Dressing up clothes provided for all pupils for all events, not just KS1.
More open-ended costumes for World Book Day. For example, all wearing silly socks to represent the books Socks by Nick Sharratt and Elizabeth Lindsay or Mr. Croc's Silly Sock by Frank Rodgers, or stripes to represent pirate books
CURRICULUM ISSUESRESOURCESLooking at how resources are provided for specific subjects, such as textiles and food tech, to ensure equal access to the top GCSE grades.
Maths dept stopped allowing pupils to use smart phones as calculators.
HOMEWORK Online homework reviewed so that those accessing the internet from home dont earn more coins to spend on their avatar.
Home learning tasks no longer marked in the same way to avoid rewarding most parental involvement / most resources used.
Resources provided for home challenges, such as dressing up a potato for World Book Day.
CLASS SETTINGAbility setting in Y6 reassessed as FSM skewed into lowest sets.
