Learning & Teaching

This year at Newington Academy, we are trying to:

  • improve standards in writing including presentation of work
  • improve standards in maths with a focus on number
  • improve the outdoor area of the Foundation Stage and children's speaking skills
  • communicate clear next steps (targets) for the children in writing and maths, and children responding to marking.

Ongoing improvements include:

  • improve attendance to 95%
  • improve the provision for children who have English as an additional language eg better induction and assessments
  • continue to evaluate and improve the skill based curriculum (afternoon subjects) to include effective visits/visitors and planned writing and maths opportunities.
