Sustaining excellence in the classroom

Dear Students


Teachers are working hard to ensure that every lesson


*  Has a WALT, an objective to the lesson you are in.


*  At some stage during the lesson has a clear WILF so that you know exactly how you will be assessed and get high marks.


*  Has a number of plenaries so that you know what you have learnt and what you need to do to make even more progress in your learning for the next lesson.



When in doubt, please ask for help!  Remember we are here to ensure you achieve high marks.




We believe every child and young adult at Sprowston Community High School should be ... 'Healthy, happy and safe; loved, valued and respected; and have high aspirations for their future.'

Pupil Premium: Information for Parents/Carers

Pupil Premium is additional funding provided to schools by the Government for certain groups of students.

As a school we are committed to the attainment and achievement of all students. However we recognise that some students are potentially more vulnerable than others and for this reason we are keen that the additional funds that we have been allocated are used strategically and pro-actively to narrow any gaps in achievement that may exist.
