School Development Priorities 2021/2022
Every year we review our key priorities to improve our school. This year, school priorities have been set to ensure all children make rapid progress:
PRIORITY 1: QUALITY OF EDUCATION
- Improving fluency and stamina of reading.
- Progression of vocabulary across all subjects is ambitious and builds on previous knowledge coherently.
- Curriculum implementation is effective, challenging, well evidenced and impact shown in accelerated pupil progress across all subjects.
PRIORITY 2: BEHAVIOUR AND ATTITUDES
- Opportunities to grow pupil responsibilities
- Re-establishing strong parental involvement in school, to ensure a shared vision and responsibility for children’s behaviour and attitudes both in and outside of school.
PRIORITY 3: PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT
- Increase opportunities for all children, particularly the most vulnerable to grow in self confidence and resilience and increase aspirations.
- Increase opportunities for children to make a positive contribution to their local community.
- Increase opportunities for children to make a positive global contribution.
PRIORITY 4: EFFECTIVENESS OF LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT
- Safeguarding – Continue to embed culture where sexual harassment inside school is recognised, responded to and not tolerated.
- Ensure all subject leaders are effectively driving school improvement, resulting in good outcomes for all children at least in line with national expectations.
- Ensure all governors work to communicate the vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school and develop a culture of ambition, with high challenge and support.
PRIORITY 5: EARLY YEARS
- Raise pupil progress and outcomes in the application of Early Reading and Writing with the introduction of a new SSP programme.
- Ensure children make rapid progress with the development of their Early Communication and Language skills through a progressive programme of oracy.
