Our Whole School Improvement Priorities for 2020/21

(The focus for middle leaders and co-ordinators' action plans)



Talk for Learning – giving children a range of opportunities to articulate ideas for writing; to develop comprehension in reading, to speak confidently in a variety of settings and to improve reasoning in maths.

Pride in our Learning – giving children a range of opportunities to improve the content of their writing, handwriting, presentation and spelling.

Progress in Learning – Filling the gaps in pupils’ knowledge and understanding due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Giving children a range of opportunities to make outstanding progress from their starting points (evidenced in books, next steps targets and assessment records).  Moving forward with the English curriculum which is becoming more text led to enrich the genre focus. Strengthening the progress that the most able pupils make in writing (Ofsted 19). Exploring online platforms to support teaching and learning, homework and the day to day running of the school – blended learning

Inclusion for Learning – Continue to monitor all vulnerable pupils (including SEND, PPG, Kurdish, Early stage EAL, more able) for Learning, Attendance, Behaviour and social / mental needs. Identifying pupils where there are huge gaps in learning and implementing  appropriate interventions including training to support pupils with SEND as part of normal class teaching

Leaders’ impact on Learning – Leaders and staff at all levels to continue to rigorously review outcomes across the whole curriculum to impact on pupil learning. Leaders implementing an effective education continuity plan during the COVID – 19 pandemic

Succession Planning – increase pupil numbers and ensure the school continues to have strong leaders at all levels and planning for the safe return of all pupils in September following lockdown.
