School Improvement Plans

Context

Pupil outcomes are high, with some areas for further development in each phase in order to best support all of our pupils to become lifelong learners with good learning habits and a thirst for further success.

In 2021/22 our first priority is to enable all pupils to pass the phonic screening test in year 1, regardless of starting points. A validated scheme has been purchased. Our previous scheme was successful for most pupils, but the pandemic has highlighted the need for consistency across the school for those with additional needs.

Our second priority is to enable every child to catch up whilst still accessing a broad and ambitious curriculum. We are achieving this by nurturing all of our pupils as individuals, extending the day with catch-up, short focused precision teaching sessions, doodle maths and high quality teaching.
