Learning for Life

School Improvement

2021-22 Priorities

We continue to focus on the recovery of pupils following the pandemic.


To raise the quality of the curriculum so that all subjects, including writing outcomes are in line with national and learning is remembered well.

To ensure that each subject is taught progressively across the school and that Knowledge Organisers are in place to support teachers planning lessons.

To ensure that writing is taught through a clear sequence of small step lessons which develop into a learning journey, with clear progress across the school.


Quality of Education

Reading, Writing and Maths 

To ensure that all pupils meet age related expectations in Reading, Writing and Maths.

To ensure that all pupils leave the school reading fluently and with a love of reading.

To ensure that all pupils can spell age appropriate words correctly. 

To ensure that pupils have a good fluency in number facts.

To accelerate progress for disadvantaged pupils so that attainment and progress gaps with their peers are closed.



To establish a personalised curriculum for all pupils.

To use the school community to review the school values.

To produce personal passports for each year group to develop further 'learning for life.'


Continuous Professional Development (CPD)

Ongoing opportunities for staff development

Our deputy will continue the work of developing teaching and learning across the school and focus on developing fluency of number facts as well as writing.

Our science lead will continue working with other Harlow teachers as part of the Ogden Trust initiative which HET is organising. 

Our teachers are working together to coach each other, and we will continue to use the other schools within TMAT to support us.

Some teachers will be developing themselves through National Professional Qualification of Middle Leaders and Senior Leaders. (NPQML, NPQSL)
