KEY HEADLINES OF THE SCHOOL DEVELOPMENT PLAN 2015/2016
The full plan, written to build on our very good Ofsted report (May 2015), is a detailed document and runs to several pages highlighting milestones for improvement and including success criteria, actions, resourcing costs and monitoring timetables. Monitoring of progress is evaluated by the head teacher, governors and externally overseen by an advisor, head teacher of an ‘Outstanding’ partner school and an HMI. A summary of the key priorities and evaluation points, however, is below. It is too early, yet to make judgements regarding impact, but this will be updated later in the year.
To improve pupils' attainment and accelerate progress in mathematics
To strengthen further the wider network of support for the school and teaching staff
To strengthen community cohesion and our links with the local community
Strengthen cross curricular links and in particular an outdoor approach to learning to enable pupils to demonstrate mastery.
