Areas for further development:
Leaders and those responsible for governance should ensure that:
1. The school should ensure that staff have the strategies they need to match current learning precisely to what pupils already know.
2. In some subjects, teachers do not precisely match the tasks they set, or the questions they ask, to pupils’ existing knowledge. As a result, pupils do not always remember as much important knowledge as they could or connect their learning over time
