School Improvement

We continually strive to make our school the best it can be, building on our strengths and being honest in our evaluation of the school. We identify actions each year to focus on and review and evaluate these throughout the year. We have a school development plan and action plans for key subjects as well as for our pupil school council and eco council.

Due to the partial closure of schools from March 2020 until September 2020 the School Development Plan for 2020-21 focuses on the needs of our pupils following this disruption to their schooling.

 

School Development Plan 2020-21

We are implementing our identified actions to address our three key targets for this academic year:

 

Target 1 - Area for Improvement:  Developing Vision Characteristics

Success Criteria: Pupils feel confident about being at school and their learning, they are well supported with their physical and mental wellbeing, they have developed strong friendships and can engage socially with others and they feel equipped to respond to issues linked to coronavirus. They are self-aware and embrace difference and diversity within our school.

 

Target 2 - Area for Improvement: Curriculum

Success Criteria: Our teaching and curriculum supports pupils to ensure they are working at the appropriate age related expectation by the end of the year, filling gaps in learning following the partial closure of school during 2020.

 

Target 3: - Area for Improvement: Subject leadership

Success Criteria: The quality of teaching in English, maths, science, PE and RE is improved through strong subject leadership using clear, measurable steps that are purposefully monitored and regularly reviewed.
