School Priorities

Below are our priorities for this current school year 2020-2021. These are the key drivers for moving us forward.

Leadership & Management

Ensure there is a stable and effective leadership structure including a full governing body, SIP, SLT and MLT

Further refine our school improvement processes involving SEF, SDP and effective appraisal

Quality of Education

Use of ICT and reading are a focus for teachers in all areas of the curriculum.

Use effective formative assessment to continually evaluate planning, ensuring that it is sequenced towards cumulatively sufficient knowledge and skills for future learning and employment.

Behaviour & Attitudes

Relationships among learners and staff reflect a positive and respectful culture.

Have high expectations for learners’ behaviour and conduct and apply these expectations consistently and fairly.

Personal Development

Further expand our curriculum to provide for learners’ broader development, encouraging them to develop and discover their interests and talents

Continue to support learners to develop their character – including their resilience, confidence and independence – and help them know how to keep physically and mentally healthy
