School Priorities

Each year we produce a School Improvement Plan (SIP) which shows what we want to achieve during the year and how we plan to do it.

We use information from the pupil and parent questionnaires, data from test results and information from self-evaluation to make decisions about what should go on the plan.

At the start of the year, staff and governors meet to look at all the information gathered and suggest actions and targets for the plan. This is then written by the Senior Leadership Team and agreed by staff and governors. Pupils and parents are made aware of what the school priorities are.

Throughout the year the plan is reviewed to ensure we are on track to meet our targets.

This year our targets are:

  • To ensure all children consistently achieve high quality learning across the curriculum, to increase the percentage of pupils at Age Related Expectations (ARE) in each year group.

  • To introduce Philosophy for Children (P4C) and monitor the impact.
  • To ensure our data system is robust, fit for purpose and driving school improvement through targeted interventions.

This year our targets are:

  • To ensure all children consistently achieve high-quality learning across the curriculum, driven by high-quality teaching.
