School Development Priorities 2017-2018

Each year the school staff and governors consider the school's strengths and areas for development, with additional input from parents and pupils,  to ensure standards, achievements, the environment, safety & well-being as well as leadership and management are on a continual drive for improvement.

Below are the main areas, overarching our development plan. Within each of these will be further actions and success criteria. For example WRITING is a key focus and will be evident in a number of areas, as will FLUENCY in mathematical understanding and knowledge. Funding is allocated to ensure success, but this can only happen with the drive of excellence by all; staff, governors, pupils, parents and community.
