School Improvement Priorities

School Improvement Plan 2023/24


Focus 1: Quality of Education

1.  Continue to improve the teaching of  phonics, reading and mathematics so that all pupils make at least expected progress. 

2.  Continue to develop the teaching of writing  so that pupils’ attainment (by the end of Key Stage 2) matches attainment in reading and mathematics.

3.  Introduce and implement the CUSP curriculum to enhance the quality of education on offer.  

4.  Ensure high quality teaching is adapted to meet the needs of all, particularly disadvantaged pupils and those with SEND.

Focus 2: Leadership & Management

5. Leaders demonstrate a clear and ambitious vision for providing high-quality education for all pupils, including high expectations for behaviour and attitudes.

6. Leaders work in partnership with all relevant stakeholders to secure ambitious outcomes for pupils and their families. 

7. Leaders continue to prioritise staff well-being and proactively reduce workload

8. Leaders introduce and promote the Rights Respecting School Award to enable pupils and staff to flourish

Focus 3: Behaviour & Attitudes

9. Further strengthen safeguarding,  anti-bullying and behaviour systems to facilitate effective classroom routines, movement around the school and  purposeful unstructured times.

10. Develop a nurture provision that enables pupils with increasingly complex needs to thrive.

11. Continue to reduce persistent absence and improve attendance.

Focus 4: Personal Development

12.  Continue to raise aspirations by prioritising  equality in the curriculum, SMSC and extra-curricular opportunities that promote exceptional personal development.

Focus 5: EYFS 

13. Continue to improve the teaching of early writing within EYFS to assist with pupil attainment at the end of Key stages 1 and 2.  

Focus 6: Christian Ethos
