School Development Plan

Effectiveness of Leadership and Management

Target 1 - To accurately assess F1s and F2s within first six weeks and ensure those identified as most able have tasks that stretch and challenge them to ensure that they make strong progressLeaders and governors have a deep, accurate understanding of the school’s effectiveness informed by their monitoring and the views of pupils, parents and staff. They use this to keep the school improving by focusing on the impact of their actions in key areas.

Target 2 – To strengthen and drive improvements in Christian distinctiveness, RE and worship by establishing a more systematic and formal system of monitoring and evaluation that include the views of all stakeholders.

Target 3 – School leaders support a broad and balanced curriculum that inspires pupils to learn. Teaching staff create a climate where deepened learning through enquiry, resilience and reasoning is promoted

Target 2 – Pupils will use enquiry, resilience and reasoning skills to provide a firm foundation from which a poem of greater substance and depth can be created.

Target 3– To develop reasoning skills in mathematics by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language


Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare

Target 1 - To offer a rich, broad and balanced curriculum that promotes the personal development of pupils and develops creativity and a healthy lifestyle alongside a ‘can do’ attitude and resilience to learning.
