School Development Priorities 2019-2020

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; the development of a rich CURRICULUM, securing skills and knowledge. WRITING will continue as a key focus and will be evident in a number of areas,  especially for boys and for the detail of grammar and spelling. We shall be continuing to further 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.
