School Improvement

2022-23 Priorities

Following our 'Good' Ofsted, in February 2022, we are focusing on the following this year. 


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

To ensure that Geography and DT are taught progressively across the school like all our other subjects.

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 and opportunities to redraft writing frequently.


To ensure all pupils have opportunities to play an active part in the local and wider community, through developing cultural capital.

To use pupil passports to enhance pupils learning of life skills.

To enable all pupils to attend a sporting event as well as enjoy learning through trips and an art experience.

To support pupils to improve their attendance so that they can access their learning.

Special Educational Needs (SEND)

To develop staff understanding of the needs of pupils with SEND, especially how pupils different barriers can affect behaviour and provide pupils with support, understanding attachment needs with a child-centred approach.  

Continuous Professional Development (CPD)
