School Development Plan 2017-18

 

Below is a reminder for parents of the main priorities for the school in 2017-18.

You will also find a list of success criteria by which we will determine how we have performed towards achieving these objectives.

 

OBJECTIVE 1: To further enhance the quality of teaching, learning and assessment so that outcomes for pupils continue to improve.

  • All teaching is good or better, with at least 50% considered outstanding.
  • The average point score progress for all pupils in reading will be better than expected at 3.6 (expected is 3).
  • The percentage of pupils making better than expected progress in reading, writing and maths continues to be at least 30%.
  • The gap between boys' and girls' writing progress continues to close as the progress of boys improves.
  • The gap between boys' and girls' reading progress begins to close as the progress of boys improves.
  • The percentage of pupils making expected progress in reading increases to 90% to be in line with writing and maths.
  • The percentage of 'slow movers' continues to decrease across the school.
  • Pupils' end of year targets are broadly met.
  • The progress of SEN pupils is further improved and in line with all pupils.
  • At least 90% of pupils in EYFS (Nursery and Reception) to make expected progress in maths, and at least 30% to make better than expected progress.
  • Progress is made towards achieving the long-term target of 85% of pupils reaching age-related expectations in reading, writing and maths combined at the end of Key Stage 2.

 

OBJECTIVE 2: To improve outcomes by embedding outstanding SMSC (Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural) and PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic) education across the curriculum and becoming a Rights Respecting School.

  • Children understand how they can positively impact upon local and global communities.
  • The curriculum inspires pupils, and pupils' SMSC development equips them to be thoughtful, caring and active citizens in school and wider society.
  • Pupils have an improved understanding of social, moral and cultural issues at a global and local level.
  • All year groups have access to a broad and balanced curriculum that inspires them to learn and encourages them to critically assess global issues at an age appropriate level.
  • Children are more aware of their Rights under the Convention; they are self-disciplined and respect each others' rights.
  • Pupils discuss and debate issues in a considered way, showing respect for others' ideas and points of view.
  • Pupils make healthy choices with regards eating, fitness, mental well-being and relationships.
  • Whole school attendance is at least 96% in 2017/18, and rates of persistent absence are in line with national levels or below.

 

OBJECTIVE 3: To embed outstanding processes for professional development.

  • All teaching is good or better, with at least 50% considered outstanding.
  • The percentage of pupils making better than expected progress in reading, writing and maths continues to be at least 30%.
  • All staff reflect on and debate the impact of the way they teach.  They feel deeply involved in their own professional development and are challenged and supported to develop their practice.
  • All middle leaders report to senior leaders on the impact of their development plans on pupil outcomes.
