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.
