School Improvement Plan

Every academic year, senior leaders and governors meet to decide the school's priorities for the following 12 months. This is formulated in to a document called the School Improvement Priority Plan (SIPP.)

 

Priorities are chosen based upon the school's needs, progress in particular areas, government initiatives or areas that are distinctive to our school.

 

All staff have a role in achieving the objectives through a set of actions and criteria that are monitored and evaluated regularly throughout the year by SLT, governors, staff and children. This year, parent feedback will also form part of our evaluation.
