We are delighted to receive confirmation that the Ipswich Opportunity Area will benefit from a fifth year of DfE investment. Our plan for 2021-22 will focus on sharing learning, further embedding successful approaches and building sustainable networks. We look forward to continuing to develop our twinning partnership with Felixstowe, supporting schools within the town to access and implement projects that align with their collective priorities.
Our aims for Year 5 are to:
- Improve school readiness by further strengthening networks of support between EY settings, schools and families.
- Secure strong engagement in learning by continuing to tackle barriers to learning, supporting pupils’ emotional wellbeing & helping them to develop strong learning behaviours.
- Improve pupil attainment by embedding evidence-based practice in the teaching of English and maths.
