The purpose of this report is to provide and evaluation of the impact that the ‘every child matters’ has had on the teaching strategies in a specific school environment. The school selected for this purpose is Painters Ash Primary School (2012), and the effective of the strategies its educators have introduced to address these issue will be evaluated against the outcome the Ofsted (2008) inspection report carried out at this establishment.
The aims to identify current areas of weakness that still
remain at the school and to provide recommendations changes
in strategy to be made by managers to address these
challenges and improve its future inspectorate grade. The
main areas of weakness found were indicated as being related
to teaching skills and competences, the children’s
learning experience, and the level of pupil absence
resulting from time taken off for holidays. However, in
addition it is recognised that, while making improvements,
the school is likely to face challenges from changes
determined by external forces, particularly the impact of
political and socio-demographic changes.
