The School Improvement Cycle
The school improvement cycle enables staff and governors to have a long term view of the development of the school. We start by using internal and external data to establish where we are and what are the key areas for improvement (the drivers); this then informs the Strategic School Plan, success criteria and individual group actions. Each group is led by a senior member of staff with expertise in that area and I am pleased that most staff, including support staff, have opted to join one of the groups. Governors monitor actions and their impact. Throughout the
year the actions are reviewed and developed. All staff objectives for appraisals are linked to the success criteria of the Strategic School Plan as is the CPD programme and budget setting. All staff are given an annual calendar which highlights the dates for school improvement, monitoring and assessment.

Our Key Drivers for our Strategic School Plan 2019-20 are:

  • Ensure explicit links between content and National Curriculum
  • Develop the depth of scientific language and expectations of written work
  • Support safer Internet behaviours
  • Develop pupil independence
  • EYFS – support complex needs within the classroom (including Quality First Teaching)
  • KS1 & transition to KS2 – Raising expectations so that reading, writing maths combined is at least 80%
  • Whole school – Tracking of phonics into reading and writing so that by the end of KS2 100% of pupils passing phonics have passed reading and writing
  • Support work load reduction by
    • Development of marking and feedback
    • Communications protocols
  • Embed GDPR practices
