Development Plan

School Development Plan 2018/19

We have seen considerable success with academic achievement over the past few years with attainment of children at the end of Year 6 rising year on year. Achievement is measured through attainment and progress. Attainment is the actual levels that the children achieve, whilst progress measures how much improvement they have made in their levels since the end of Year 2. Achievement was deemed to be outstanding when Ofsted visited in 2015.

At the start of each year the Governing Body agree the School Development Plan that builds on what we have done well and develops areas where we can move forward.

Our Development Plan this year has these main targets:

Target 1 - Achievement of Pupils

This aims to ensure that all children not only attain high academic standards, but that they make excellent progress no matter what their starting point. This year we are focusing on any underperforming groups of children and how we can increase the number of children who achieve greater depth across the curriculum.

Target 2 – Quality of Teaching

This aims to ensure that the Quality of Teaching is consistently good or better across the school and that children know their next steps in learning. This year we are reviewing our marking and feedback policy to ensure that it supports the progress of the children.

Target 3 – Children’s Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare

This aims to ensure that there is a broad and balanced curriculum which encourages our children to become confident and independent learners who have a positive impact in the communities in which they live. This year we are focusing on encouraging the children to become even more independent learners and supporting them to becoming responsible citizens.

Target 4 – Quality of Leadership and Management

This aims to ensure that Leadership and management at all levels demonstrate high and ambitious expectations for pupils and work together for improvement. This year we are looking at ensuring the curriculum offered to all children is both broad and balanced that has a positive impact on their outcomes.

Target 5 – Early Years Foundation Stage

This aims to ensure that the provision in the early years is consistently good or outstanding. This year we are looking at developing mastery and depth within the EYFS curriculum.
