School Development Priorities for 2022-23
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. To continue strengthening our partnership, I am writing to let you know about our priorities for 2022-23.
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 2021/22 have been evaluated and the 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. In addition, we have considered the Covid-19 pandemic and the impact of the lockdown in our target setting.
MAIN PRIORITIES FOR 2022-23
QUALITY OF EDUCATION
Priority 1: To ensure the implementation of the school’s curriculum is embedded securely and consistently across the school, with a particular focus on lesson structure and pupil engagement.
Priority 2: To ensure pupils’ work across the curriculum is consistently of high quality in regards to content and presentation and the work given to pupils is demanding.
LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT
Priority 3: To ensure teachers’ subject and pedagogical knowledge consistently build and develop over time, through the delivery of effective CPD, regular monitoring and effective feedback by all leaders.
Priority 4: To ensure highly effective and meaningful engagement takes place with staff at all levels and issues are quickly identified, in particular regarding workload and well-being.
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.
