Teachers set high expectations for all pupils. 

They use appropriate assessment to set ambitious targets and plan challenging work for all groups, including: 

  • More able pupils. 

  • Pupils with low prior attainment. 

  • Pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds. 

  • Pupils with SEN. 

  • Pupils with English as an additional language (EAL). 

Teachers plan lessons so that pupils with SEN and/or disabilities can study every National Curriculum subject, wherever possible, and ensure that there are no barriers to every pupil achieving.  

Teachers will also take account of the needs of pupils whose first language is not English. Lessons will be planned so that teaching opportunities help pupils to develop their English, and to support pupils to take part in all subjects.
