School Development Priorities 2019-2020

Four Year Strategic Priorities 2016-2020 

The school vision statement was developed through consultation from stakeholders, including, all employed staff and governors.  It details our values, beliefs and culture that we strive to achieve.

From the vision we have developed four key themes that are the drivers for our annual school improvement plan.  This is the second year of the plan.  The specific priorities identified for 2017-2018 have been written to reflect the outcomes of the Ofsted inspection carried out in February 2017.

School Development Strategic Priorities 

Our Strategic priorities will be; 

  • Standards 
    • Develop an assessment framework that tracks progress and supports children’s next steps in learning. 
    • Maintain a culture of keep up not catch up (through quality first teaching and intervention). 
    • Establish a whole school approach to feedback and children response. 
    • End of key Stage 2 standards in line with national age related expectations. 
    • Review and reflect on the quality of teaching, learning and intervention to ensure constant improvement. 
  • Collaboration 
    • Teachers work together to reflect and improve the standard of teaching and learning throughout the school. 
    • Develop and contribute to the Jack Hunt Trust to further embed and extend collaborative partnerships.
