These priorities are a summary of the school improvement priorities for this academic year 2022-23.
Effectiveness of Leadership and Management
- To increase the capacity and expertise of all teaching staff, specifically middle leaders, using a coaching model across the federation professional learning community.
Quality of Education
- To improve children’s proficiency in spoken language, and vocabulary acquisition and application in every subject.
- To embed a process approach to writing, further developing direct instruction about writing knowledge and targeted practice.
- To improve children’s retrieval of skills and knowledge across the curriculum, through embedding school’s agreed strategies and use of diagnostic assessment to address learning gaps.
Behaviour and Attitudes
- To re-examine and re-establish a whole-school culture in which behaviour routines are implemented positively, consistently and with transparency, in accordance with the behaviour policy.
- To improve attendance to meet/exceed the local and national average, (for all groups including SEND/Disadvantaged) and support families to reduce incidences of persistent absence across the school.
- To further embed a school culture of anti-racism through the PSHE curriculum and the implementation of the new anti-racist policy, whilst continuing to review representation in the wider curriculum.
Effectiveness of Early Years
