Ofsted good practice example showing how Ellenbrook Primary emphasises pupil independence and choice.



This example shows how Ellenbrook Primary School emphasises pupil independence and choice, beyond the Early Years Foundation Stage. A well-established enquiry-based curriculum permeates the rest of the school and assists transition. In Year 1, demanding Key Stage 1 objectives, derived via careful formative assessment, are achieved through learning approaches used widely in the Early Years Foundation Stage. Pupils take responsibility, and make rapid progress in their learning.
