Our school priorities very much focus around our vision, with our targets linking back to supporting all pupils ‘…… fulfilling their full potential and achieving their dreams and aspirations.’ Central, is the importance of the whole child, helping them to grow in ‘Heart, Mind & Spirit.’  

Leadership and Management

  • To continue to develop leadership at all levels.
  • To further strengthen the role of all governors to increase their impact across the school.
  • To continue to increase leadership capacity and responsibilities, up skilling members of staff to take on new roles.

Behaviour & Attitudes

  • To continue to monitor our safeguarding provision, procedure and practice across the school.
  • To implement and embed the Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA) programme.
  • To continue to improve the attendance of all pupils who are persistent absentees, as well as generally promoting good attendance following the national pandemic and the implications that this has had on children attending school.

Quality of Education (Intent, Implementation & Impact)

  • To continue to embed the recently reviewed curriculum changes within the foundation subjects.
  • To continue to provide opportunities for children to develop their skills in writing and maths across the curriculum.
  • To continue to develop our core purpose of reading, ensuring that:

  • (OFSTED)
  • ‘Pupils’ skills acquired in phonics sessions are applied more widely across the curriculum at key stage 1 so that they continue to support spelling and grammar.’

  • To continue to review the extra- curricular clubs to ensure there is a wide range of opportunities on offer.
  • To promote further the British values, alongside our school vision and values, making clear and explicit links between them.
  • To embed and develop further the understanding of developing a ‘Growth Mindset’ to support both resilience and attitudes towards learning.
  • To reaffirm and support new members of staff to embed and live out the school vision and values including British values.

Early Years Development
