    FOCUS: Do mixed ability groups in English improve writing outcomes?

    Actions taken so far:

    - Toni has visited another school to observe strategy in action.

    - Discussion with SLT to agree to introduce mixed ability groups in English every day (July 2018).

    - Toni undertook research into the benefits of both mixed ability and ability groups and how this impacts on outcomes (August 2018).

    - Toni led training day session to introduce to all teachers and TAs (Sept 2018).

    Actions to be taken:

    - Implement new approach in KS1 from start of term.

    - Regular discussions at team meetings.

    - English ‘pop-ins’ to check progress of strategy in each class.

    - Support staff through peer observations in school or visiting other schools to observe practice.

    - Review at SLT meeting on 4/10/18.

    - Review at staff meeting on 9/10/18.

    - Adapt approach as needed in response to feedback.

    - Consider how to facilitate children self-selecting learning activities rather than teacher directed. 

    Any support/ideas gratefully received!
