To be an excellent school, we must constantly be reflecting, developing and improving on our practice. We develop learners to be incremental in their attitude so we must move our school forward in the same way. School improvement is shaped by ambition and a duty of care to our pupil’s futures.

Our School Development key priorities have been established as a result of consultation with all stakeholders and responsibility for each priority is distributed through the staff and governors of the school. The Senior Leadership Team will track the progress against each of the priorities and regularly RAG rate the targets. This will be presented to staff and governors each cycle.

In the Summer Term the Senior Leadership Team will facilitate a consultation process with all stakeholders (children who attend our school, their parents and family, our staff and the governors who help lead the school) and their views on the future development of the school will be taken into consideration as we start to plan for the next academic year.

We welcome feedback and ideas linked to our key priorities from anyone who shares an interest in driving the school to providing outstanding education for all our children, so please get in touch.
