Improving Our School
Improving Our School
In 2017 we saw the number of children leaving our Reception classes with a Good Level of Development rise. We also saw a 5% increase in the number of Year 6 pupils reaching the expected standard in reading, writing and maths and a 10% increase in the number of children at the end of Key Stage 2 who reached the expected standard in reading. In addition to this we saw increases in the number of Year 6 pupils attaining higher level of attainment in reading, writing, maths and GPS and a 16% increase in the number of children leaving Key Stage One at the expected standard in Maths, however these successes are not good enough.
Standards at the end of all phases and Key Stages demand improvement. We know that we need to improve our School. Together a new SLT and a strengthened Governing Board have drawn up a comprehensive plan of improvement to increase rates of progress and raise levels of attainment. In addition to improving standards we also recognise that far too many of our children miss school due to unauthorised absences or arrive after our register has closed. We have set ourselves ambitious targets for 2018. Our journey of improvement has begun; we look forward to you tracking our progress as the year develops.
Our School Improvement Plan focuses on five key areas:
1. Leadership & Management
2. Pupil Outcomes
3. The Quality of Teaching & Learning
4. Pupil behaviour, safety and well-being
Each member of our Senior Leadership Team (SLT) has been tasked with the implementation and monitoring of one of these key areas. Each area of the plan is also linked to a member of our Governing Board. Progress is discussed with governors at each Governing Board meeting and with our School Improvement Partner. A large display in our school entrance area also shares with our visitors what we are focussing on for that term.
