School Improvement

School Improvement Priorities

The 2018 priorities are:

Enrich our approach to teaching mathematics mastery so that children across the school demonstrate a deep, long term and secure understanding of what they have learnt so that they have the ability to reason and solve a variety of more complex problems.

Enhance writing across the school and the curriculum so that children can confidently write with a greater depth of knowledge and understanding. We are looking forward to this enhancement beginning in the Early Years particularly for our boys, as well as our girls.

Enable pupils entitled to Pupil Premium funding, children who speak English as an Additional Language and children with Special Educational Needs to make accelerated progress in reading, writing and mathematics across the school to enable great standards of attainment for all.

Encourage pupils to make fantastic progress in all subjects due to high quality differentiation that allows them to access the broad and balanced curriculum that we offer.

Exercise our skill as teachers and educators by making our assessment of non-core subjects even more effective to develop the assessment element of the teaching and learning cycle further.

Excite our staff through the delivery of high quality training that allows all staff to support teachers in marking and provide immediate feedback on pupil’s work, and encourages succession for senior leader and middle leader posts.
