School Improvement Plan
As a school we are constantly reviewing our practice to see what is working well and to identify where we could make improvements.
At the end of the Summer Term and continuing over into the start of the Autumn Term, we carry out a more formal self-evaluation process and compile a Self-Evaluation Form (SEF). We also analyse any school data that is available, such as end of EYFS data, end of Key Stage 1 and end of Key Stage 2 SATs (Standardised Assessment Tests) results, to help us decide what our priorities are for the coming academic year.
We like to include all staff and governors in considering the strengths and areas for development. Information from parents/carers and pupils also feeds into our evaluation.
We then make a School Improvement Plan (SIP) based on the key areas of:
Leadership and Management
Teaching and Learning
Personal Development, behaviour and welfare
Outcomes for Pupils
Early Years Foundation Stage
Once we know our key objectives, we then decide what actions are needed, who will do them, when they will be done, how they will be monitored and evaluated and what resources will be needed, in order for the objectives to be met.
The school’s Senior Leadership Team (SLT) monitors the School Improvement Plan (SIP) and our Self-Evaluation Form (SEF) every half term. The Governing Body also monitors the plans at each committee meeting.
