Ofsted gave us a target last year which focused on improving presentation in books. They complimented our rich curriculum and said how independent the children were. Our next challenge was to ensure the children took pride in their presentation throughout their work at all times without compromising our curriculum.
We have rewarded good presentation in classes, we have set instructions in place to support presentation and I believe now we are beginning to reap the benefits of this whole school push for excellence.
I have had had a great day looking in detail at the children's written work. Have a look at the photos to see for yourself. Maybe next time you visit on parents evening you could take a few moments to comment in your child's book about the quality of their work.
