School Development Strategy
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 SDP; 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 SDP 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.
‘Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement and success have no meaning.’ Benjamin Franklin
