I finished the day with colleagues from the National Strategies at the Standards Meeting...

We were looking at our results in Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1, Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 4; primary schools below the floor targets and National Challenge secondary schools. They arrived en masse and wanted to focus on all aspects including attendance, persistent absence and special educational needs. They were incredibly positive about our primary team's work and recognised that many of the issues we face relate to poverty, parenting and expectations.
