School Improvement

2023-24 Priorities

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


To raise the accuracy of assessment to ensure that it is purposeful, meaningful and develops planning and teaching leading our children to become life-long learners.

To ensure that assessment is purposeful and supports teachers planning to fill children's gaps.


Trauma Perspective Practice

To ensure all pupils are included, listened to and developed regardless of barriers including adverse childhood experiences that could cause a child to fall behind in their learning.

To engage in trauma perspective practice training.

To embed further an element on zones of regulation.

To engage in one other element of trauma perspective practice.


To embed our quality of the curriculum to ensure that outcomes are inline or above national standard in all areas.

To ensure that the gap between writing and other core subjects continues to close.

To ensure that Geography, RE and DT are embedded fully and teachers receive the training to develop their own subject knowledge in these areas. 

Continuous Professional Development (CPD)

Ongoing opportunities for staff development

A number of staff are busy engaging in different courses to enhance their knowledge.

As a Trust our teachers offer development and receive it across the three primary schools.
