School Priorities

The governors, trustees and senior leadership team's evaluation of  performance and effectiveness was very thorough last year.  They examined the progress that pupils had made across the curriculum in all year groups as well as considering statutory changes to primary education in order to prioritise what needed further work and development in 2017-18. 

Each year group has clear priorities to address which are relevant for those children in that class.  The teacher and teaching assistant are aware of these plans.  They will be implemented and reviewed termly to make sure they are making a difference for individuals and groups of children.

In addition, we have a number of priorities that the whole staff are working on.  Some of the priorities and actions spread across the whole academy trust and staff benefit from working within a larger team, supporting each other and sharing good practice. 

The following areas are priorities for 2017/18:

  • To further develop an enriched, creative curriculum to enhance the learning and opportunities for all pupils.
  • To raise standards in reading, writing and mathematics to increase the percentage of pupils working at age related expectations at the end of the summer term
  • To increase pupil engagement, challenge, independence, deep learning, application of skills and thinking skills using a growing repertoire of teaching techniques, which will also maximise opportunities for assessment of learning
  • To develop and embed Growth Mindset throughout school
  • To improve the standards of writing,  grammar, punctuation and spelling across the school
