These are our priorities:

  3. Ensure consistency and security in internal and external judgements on standards in reading, writing and maths
  4. Continue to improve teaching through energetic performance management
  5. Further improve provision and outcomes in all subject areas particularly in music and the arts
  6. Apply robust accountability to all areas of responsibility for all staff
  7. Ensure deep monitoring of the effectiveness of the school by all leaders and governors
  8. Work with the governors to secure consistently good or better outcomes in all aspects of provision


Teaching, Learning and Assessment

  1. Ensure 100% good teaching in all year groups with all teachers using a rich range of monitoring information

  3. Complete a highly effective and purposeful EYFS outdoor classroom
  4. Develop computing curriculum and technology across the school to a high standard

  6. Reading for learning becomes endemic in the school


Pupil Outcomes

  5. Close the gap in attainment between pupil premium children and the rest of the cohort
