School Improvement

Summary of School Improvement Priorities 2015 - 2017

1. Parental Engagement

Some families have difficulty supporting their child's learning at home or attending school activities and may live a considerable distance from school (OFSTED March 2015). We are working on ways to improve partnerships with all families including providing transport, family groups and a programme of home visits if requested.

2. Teaching, Learning and Assessment

We are continuing to develop our Middle Leaders, the quality of teaching through peer to peer mentoring and seeking opportunities to provide school to school support. We are also providing 1:1 tuition in English and Maths for those who need it. Assessment and reporting procedures are under review in line with the new National Curriculum and most effective use of school data. We are focussing on extending number work, incorporating iPad skills, PSHE Policies and developing personal safety.

3. Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare

The main focus is on keeping children safe and maintaining excellent safeguarding arrangements. It is essential that our pupils learn protective behaviours for their personal safety both when they are online and 'out and about' as they can be particularly vulnerable. It is also an on going priority to learn how to overcome communication difficulties and develop personal & social skills. Our PSHE curriculum and arrangements for SMSC education are being reviewed to reflect life in the modern world and prepare pupils for secondary education, ensuring equality and diversity requirements are met.

4. Outcomes for Learners

We are focussing on attainment and progress of individuals and groups from their different starting points and effective reporting to Governors and parents. We are looking at our assessment systems, use of data and membership of professional moderation groups in the light of curriculum changes. We are also improving ways of sharing staff skills with colleagues and developing strategies for pupils to use in order to transfer their basic skills across different curriculum areas.
