School Development Plan

A School Development Plan is written every year to support the learning journey of the school and enable us to support and develop all aspects of school life, from teaching and learning to behaviour and welfare, as well as improving the resources available to teachers and children whilst continuing to maintain and improve the school building and site.


A variety of documentation is used to support this plan-


The previous OFSTED Inspection Report, the school’s self-evaluation [SEF], in-school assessment and target setting information, reports from the School Improvement Personnel, staff appraisal/performance management, stakeholder’s questionnaires and the need to address local and national initiatives.


The action plan is very detailed and identifies what the Headteacher, SLT, staff and governors have discussed, prioritised and time scaled. For each area for development, the plan details, the action to be taken; Who is responsible for each action?; Who will monitor the process and how will it be carried out?; the timescale involved; success criteria and a RAG rating for February and June.


Please have a look at the Key Priorities of the School Development Plan (SDP) for this year 2017-2018.
