The School Improvement Plan is formulated using a wealth of information such as:
- End of key stage attainment
- Performance against other schools as illustrated in RAISE online
- Progress information from across the school
- Needs analysis for specific cohorts of children
- Development points from previous OFSTED inspections
- Feedback from pupils, parents and staff
This information is used to formulate school improvement aims for a three year period. Teaching staff are members of a school improvement team tackling key priorities. Teams draw up detailed action plans for each academic year identifying key actions, progress measures and impact information. The budget is matched to meet the aims of these priorities.
Leaders have an accurate view of the school and the relative strengths and areas of development. Through a robust school improvement plan, leaders target the next steps for improvement to help the school move further forward. For example, in the past boys made less progress than boys nationally in their writing but, as a result of leaders action, boys progress in writing improved.
