School Development Priorities 2018-2019

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 MATHS MASTERY, including 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.
