Key Themes for 2020-21
Every year we think carefully about our strengths and areas for development and the Senior Leadership Team and governors to write a school improvement plan. This year the key priorities on the school improvement plan include:
To ensure that all children are able to catch up through an extensive recovery curriculum, so coronavirus does not have a negative impact on their life chances. This is not just an academic package, “but makes sure all children`s well-being is prioritised and that all children are able to access their learning through having their well-being needs met”.
For subject leaders and teachers to ensure that our broader curriculum is exceptional, with all subjects being taught with knowledge rich lessons that inspire and engage children.
For reading to be at the heart of our learning day. For all children to be able to be given support to make sure they read fluently and enjoy reading.
