2. Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare

  • To embed our practice and ensure that we continue to offer a school life based on positive mental health and well being for children, staff, parents and governors.

3. Outcomes for Pupils

  • Pupils in all year groups and of all abilities (including the most able) are set challenging goals, produce work that deepens their knowledge, understanding and skills and, make good - accelerated progress from their starting points.
  • Pupils achieve or exceed standards expected for their age nationally at the end of EYFS and KS1.
  • Provide targeted interventions for pupils who need additional support in phonics, writing and social and emotional areas. Interventions for more able pupils specifically in English and Maths.
  • Ensure disadvantaged and those with SEND make good progress and achieve well compared to their prior attainment and starting points so that they are well prepared for their next stages in education


4. Leadership and Management

  • Senior Leadership team works closely with the diocese to continue to improve school effectiveness in relation to teaching and learning, scrutinising data, monitoring English and Maths.
  • Conduct a GDPR audit by our DPO and write up an action plan.


5. Early Years

  • Ensure outstanding progress from relative starting points (baseline assessment) for the youngest children is made in all 17 areas of learning in order to maximise the percentage of pupils achieving GLD by the end of the year. 
  • Continue to raise standards in core areas especially early writing and reading to ensure standards continue to improve
  • To improve the outside area provision so that children can access a range of areas independently to improve reading, writing and early language skills.
