Our Whole School Priorities 2018-19

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


Effectiveness of Leadership and Management

a) Enhance whole school communication systems.

b) Further embed the culture of distributed Leadership and Management at all levels, through staff led sharply focused school improvement projects which lead to external accreditation.

c) Further enhance the breadth and balance of the curriculum.

Teaching, Learning and Assessment

a) Encourage outstanding progression and engagement in learning by providing high quality artistic and technical learning experiences.

b) Enhance standardisation of assessment systems within each key stage.

Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare

Enhance whole school behaviour management systems in order to continue to improve pupil attendance and engagement.

Outcomes for Pupils

Continue to improve functional literacy and numeracy so that pupils make consistently strong progress from their individual starting points. Pupils are able to effectively apply their learning skills across the full range of the curriculum.


We are confident that we have moved forward in our journey of school improvement, and we judge ourselves as 'Good’ in all areas.
