School Improvement & Development Plan 2020-2021
To improve the quality of teaching and raise standards for all children, ‘nothing is as important as learning’.
Improvement is most likely to be successful if it involves:
- a commitment by the whole community to ongoing improvement;
- a set of practical strategies for change;
- the setting of priorities and timeframes;
- clear accountability for monitoring implementation and evaluating impact.
The School Improvement and Development Plan (SIDP) communicates the school’s priorities to all stakeholders and is a tool to drive the budget plan. Through the implementation of the SIDP we hope to achieve our school mission statement and fulfil our school aims.
PROCESS OF DEVELOPMENT All stakeholders will be involved with the development of the SIDP; including pupils, parents, governors and staff, contributing their views through questionnaires, meetings and informal discussions. The governors have a key role in monitoring the implementation and effectiveness of the SI&DP through formal visits and termly reports from the senior leadership team. The Leadership Team will also monitor implementation through observation and discussion at regular Leadership Team meetings.
We remain committed to the EVERY CHILD MATTERS agenda:
being healthy: enjoying good physical and mental health and living a healthy lifestyle
staying safe: being protected from harm and neglect
enjoying and achieving: getting the most out of life and developing the skills for adulthood
making a positive contribution: being involved with the community and society and not engaging in anti-social or offending behaviour
economic well-being: not being prevented by economic disadvantage from achieving their full potential in life
‘Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement and success have no meaning.’ Benjamin Franklin
