School Development Plan

Dear Parents & children,

Every year the Governors and staff consider how we could make our school even better than it already is. Once we have done this we produce our School Development Plan.

This year we have 5 priorities.

PRIORITY FOCUS WHAT WILL YOU SEE AT SCHOOL

To work more closely with local nursery schools to improve transition into school

Mrs Smith and Mrs Chantler will be visiting the nursery schools to share all your good work.

 

We will be asking (parents and children) how we can improve this.

 

Reception staff will hold a termly coffee morning to get to know our Reception parents better.

To continue to improve maths teaching attainment and progress across the school.

We will be focusing on our children who are entitled to free school meals to ensure they make as much progress as possible.

 

More able will be challenged to use and apply their knowledge more regularly.

 

All children will be encouraged to use practical maths equipment.

 

We will be writing a new calculation policy and sharing it with you all.

To continue to improve English teaching attainment and progress across the school.

We will be focusing on our children who are entitled to free school meals to ensure they make as much progress as possible.

 

We will be developing guided reading at school, Miss Phillips will write to you all about this.

 

The KS2 library will be developed and made more exciting. The money raised by our ‘Parent Council’ will help to do this.

 

We will be working hard to develop peer assessment, this is where the children give feedback to each other.

 

Watch out Reception children, we will be teaching you to join up your letters!

To develop the role of subject leadership across the school, such as Art, PT, PE, Geography, Science, History, RE and German

Teaching staff in charge of these subjects will be looking closely at all your work to make sure it is amazing. They will also suggest to your teachers ways of making it even better.

 

Our Governing Body will be told about all your super work and how it has been improved.
To extend our new assessment system to cover Science and the other foundation subjects mentioned above. Our subject leaders will be working together to produce a system that makes sure we track our achievements and we all know what you need to do next in subjects such as Science, RE and Discovery Quest.

We are all very proud of our school, but we are always looking for ways to make it even better.

Look out for the changes and if you have any questions please come in and talk to us. If you would like to see a full copy of the School Development Plan just pop in and ask.

Thank you for your continued support.

Yours sincerely,

 

Mrs Ellen Taylor
