We continually try to improve what we do at our school in order to give your children the best experience possible. Each year we devise a School Development Plan (SDP) which outlines our priorities for the year. The priorities in the SDP are based on the changing needs of our school and our pupils.  

The following are key highlights from the 2023-24 SDP. It is a working document and priorities may change and develop over the year.

Priority OneTo ensure agreed procedures for the teaching of reading and writing are embedded and followed and to map out vocabulary across school.

Priority Two

To improve fluency in maths across school including the teaching of times tables in Key Stage 2.  

Priority Three

To develop the teaching of history and geography across school. Consider the context in which geography is taught and ensure full coverage of the curriculum. Consider chronology in history and develop whole school timelines that complement the teaching of chronology.  

Priority Four

To ensure full coverage of, and evidencing of, British Values and Spiritual, Moral, Social, and Cultural development (SMSC) across school.  

Priority Five

To review procedures and systems that encourage pupil and staff well-being.  

Priority Six

To ensure ‘The Curiosity Approach’ is in place across EYFS and that modules are completed towards accreditation to ensure high quality teaching and learning across EY provision.
