One Page Profiles at Copmanthorpe School, York
After a visit to Norris Bank School last year, we have started to introduce One Page Profiles, initially to support our children through transitions between year groups. Our Year Twos completed half a terms PSHE on finding out their own learning styles and preferences and then wrote their first One Page Profile at the end of the Summer term. These allowed their Year Three teachers to fully ‘meet’ their new classes before they arrived back at school in September. The children are now approaching their mid-year ‘review’ of their Profiles during which they will reflect on how they have grown, learned and changed over the academic year so far.
Having seen a successful start in Year Two and after a recent visit by Gill Goodwin, we are now planning to develop our own version of One Page Profile Plus to support gifted and talented children and children with SEN. We are also developing transition to one of our secondary schools, Tadcaster Grammar, using One Page Profiles to pass on vital information on supporting our children during their secondary transfer. Finally, we’re hoping to spread some of our One Page Profile work into our neighbouring primary schools, a busy year!
