We want everyone to fulfil their potential at Stakesby. We monitor how they are doing in each session and use this information to plan their next steps for the next day. Every half term we gather an overall picture of their attainment and progress, sometimes using assessment tests. This information is used to quickly identify children who may be beginning to fall behind and need some additional support.

Our Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) meets with teachers, teaching assistants, and if appropriate, parents/carers or other agencies to discuss every child in the school and decide if additional support is needed.

We hold a 'menu' of additional support programmes from which we can choose, according to need. These programmes are usually delivered by trained teaching assistants in small groups or individually over  6-8 weeks. The programmes are chosen because research evidence, or feedback from other schools indicate that they are very effective. We monitor their impact closely and switch them if they are not helping to rapidly improve a child's progress or confidence.

When a drone visited Stakesby!

Paul from YorkshireDroneServices.com recently visited Stakesby with his drone to take some images of the children spelling out the word 'GOOD' in celebration of our recent Ofsted success. Year 5 used problem solving techniques in a maths lesson to work out the area that the children had to stand in and how the children and letters would be arranged. A huge 'Thank You' to Paul for his services and patience and keep an eye out in the Whitby Gazette for the images!
