Whole School Priorities

Each year we set our whole school priorities for the year ahead. These are based upon our data from statutory assessments, our internal monitoring and current educational research into best practice. We write a school improvement plan that identifies each of these priorities and includes a series of actions and timescales.  All staff and governors are involved in this at the beginning of the school year. 

Below is our one-page view of our School Improvement Priorities for this academic year.



2022-2023 School Improvement Plan Priorities


Area 1: Quality of Education

Target 1: To consistently provide high-quality first teaching across the whole school through a shared vision of what exceptional practice looks like and staff confidence and skill in implementing agreed strategies

Target 2 (over 3 years): To review the curriculum to ensure that there is rigour in each subject discipline taught, with a clear progression of knowledge and skills, which builds upon prior learning and regularly retrieves knowledge so that the children know more and remember more

Area 3:  Personal development

Target 1: To expand upon enrichment opportunities though a wider range of extra-curricular activities, educational visits and visitors and half-termly ‘enrichment afternoons’

Target 2: To embed Forest School provision ensuring progression of skills is evident across the school and that outcomes of Forest school are measurable


Area 2: Behaviour and attitudes

Target 1: To implement a new Behaviour Management plan to secure consistently high standards of behaviour across the whole school due to the high expectations, role modelling and fair application of the procedure by all staff in all roles


Area 4: Leadership and Management

Target 1: To ensure all staff have a shared understanding of the school’s vision and values and that these are visible and lived in everyday aspects of school life

Target 2: To embed the Ethical Leadership Framework into all decision-making

Target 3: To maintain focus on securing good attendance

Area 5: Early Years Foundation Stage

Target 1: Develop role of the EYFS Lead to enhance consistency in provision

Target 2: Enhance opportunities for writing throughout the provision (indoors and outdoors) in Nursery and Reception



Target 1: To introduce supervision for DSL and DDSL support


Health and Safety

Target 1: To improve communication about H & S with all stakeholders so that everyone has responsibility for H & S in school
