Mental wellbeing

The emotional wellbeing of children is just as important as their physical health. Good mental health allows children and young people to develop the resilience to cope with whatever life throws at them and grow into well-rounded, healthy adults.

KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) for reading, writing and maths

The KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) for reading, writing and maths that we use with other LSP schools to make assessments on your child’s attainment and progress during the year can be found below. The KPIs below are for children in Years 1, 3, 4 and 5. (YR follow the EYFS curriculum and Y2 and Y6 teachers use the statutory frameworks for assessment). Please also note, the KPIs are written in education terms, but may be useful for parents to see for themselves and support your child’s learning at home.
