Badsley Primary School introduced the SfA English programme across school in September/ October 2017. SfA is a whole school improvement strategy which aims to embed a consistent and dynamic approach to teaching and learning known as co-operative learning.
Pupils are engaged with discussion and motivating challenges every day. They are also given effective instruction in critical academic and social skills, where interactive lessons are fully aligned to the National Curriculum standards. Pupils acquire the skills and strategies they need to read, comprehend and critically dissect complex texts.
At Badsley Primary School we have mapped the SfA curriculum against the National Curriculum age related expectations for grammar, punctuation and spelling. We group our children so that they are working at a suitable level in order to ensure that fast progress is made.
