School Development Priorities for 2019-2020
Dear Parents and Carers,
Last year, as part of our commitment to working together with parents and carers, we shared with you the key features of the annual School Development Plan for 2018-19. To continue strengthening our partnership, here are the main priorities for 2019-20.
By way of background, for those families who are new to the school, each school leadership team (Headteacher and Senior Leaders from within the school) are required to put in place a plan that will inform their work during each school year. This plan is based on evidence from a wide range of sources that include: our own monitoring of children’s learning (their books, their lessons, their views about their learning); achievement both academically and in other areas; Key Stage 2 results; the views of children, staff and parents on all aspects of the school and the findings of external review bodies such as OFSTED and the Local Authority.
Our main priorities for 2018/19 have been evaluated and the very successful outcomes of the work of all the staff, the children and their families and our governors have been used (alongside a wide range of evidence sources as detailed above) to identify the priorities for the current academic year.
MAIN PRIORITIES FOR 2019-20
- Target One - review the school’s curriculum offer by evaluating the intent, implementation and impact of our curriculum and through this, develop clear and consistent subject leadership approaches to planning, curriculum development, monitoring and evaluating learning in each subject
- Target Two - Use new teacher profiles to personalise the professional development of teachers and share outstanding teaching and learning practice across the school
- Target Three - Improve overall attainment levels in year 3 with a particular focus on Reading
- Target Four - Develop teachers’ confidence, skills and knowledge in assessing writing to ensure judgements are accurate
I trust that this brief overview of the School’s Development Plan for the coming academic year has been helpful. We look forward to continuing to work closely with you all.
