Our School Development Plan 2020-21

Dear Parents & Children,

 

Each year the staff and Governors at Little Bloxwich CE (VC) Primary School consider how we can make our school an even better place to be.

Once we have done this we produce our school development plan.

Some of the actions are directly related to the teaching our children missed due to Covid19, and identifying the gaps in the children’s learning and ensuring they catch up.

 

This year we have 4 priorities.

PRIORITY FOCUS

WHAT YOU WILL SEE

1 – To develop a consistently good quality of subject leadership insuring all subjects are taught well on a daily basis.

At the start of each Discovery Quest topic you will receive a unit overview, identifying previous learning and new vocabulary. It will also tell you what is happening every week in Discovery Quest lessons.

There will be more of a focus on the skills we teach the children to be a historian/geographer etc.

A clear focus on new vocabulary taught watch out for the new vocabulary stickers the children might come home wearing, ask them to explain what the word means.

2- To continue to improve the quality of maths teaching

1 - We have been working hard to identify gaps in the children’s learning due to time away from school due to Covid 19. The curriculum has been modified to make sure the gaps in learning are minimised as quickly as possible.

2- A focus on the teaching and learning of timetables – please support your children with x table rock starts.

3 – It is really important new maths concepts are taught practically- so you will hear more about practical maths.

3- To continue to improve the quality of English teaching

1- We have been working hard to identify gaps in the children’s learning due to time away from school due to Covid 19. The curriculum has been modified to make sure the gaps in learning are minimised as quickly as possible.

2- Handwriting is still a focus, so expect handwriting homework.

3- Reading is really important and we have a clear and successful phonics curriculum. We have recently made a few changes so we will be consolidating these. Please hear your child read at home as much as possible, Miss Stewart will be writing to you soon about reading books.

To further develop the Christian Distinctiveness within our school.

After our successful SIAMS inspection in January 2020, the areas for development are taken from this.

1-    Governors and school staff will be having updates about the SIAMS inspection evaluation.

2-   We will be looking at how we can facilitate “virtual” visits to places of worship.

3-   Develop spirituality education across the school.

 

This is just a small part of the plan if you would like to see the full school development please come into school to see Mrs.Taylor.
