School Development Plan Summary 2018-19


Key Priorities:


  1. Raise the standard and quality of teaching, learning and assessment by ensuring all teaching is at least good and a significant proportion is outstanding

  2. Improve standards of achievement, and particularly progress in mathematics

  3. Further improve standards in writing across the school by ensuring there is effective use of SPAG

  4. Develop strategies and early interventions to improve outcomes in EYFS

  5. Improve progress and outcomes for disadvantage pupils by planning interventions for disadvantaged pupils more effectively – acting on clear evidence.


Previous Inspection – Key Issues

Previous Ofsted inspection identified these development areas:


The level of achievement and progress of more able learners

To ensure writing was developed across the curriculum

To strengthen middle leadership and its impact on standards

To ensure Governors evaluate teaching and learning more effectively

To increase problem solving opportunities in mathematics


Progress on Key Issues

In order to improve standards and make progress on these key issues, the school has:

    • Delivered CPD and INSET on developing writing; which has increased the proportion of pupils achieving greater depth in this subject
    • Ensured that more able learners are a key group in the school and that those at risk of not making expected progress receive additional support;
    • Introduced focused group sessions for more able learners – STEM;
    • Introduced a more consistent and rigorous approach to subject leadership and trained leaders;
    • Ensured that middle leaders report regularly to Governors and that Governors challenge leaders on key
