School Development Priorities

School Development Priorities

Whilst our school is judged by OFSTED as being a ‘good’ school, we are always keen to build further on our strengths. This year our governors, head teacher and staff are working together on the following school development priorities:

1. To embed a language rich curriculum which is carefully planned and sequenced so as to provide children with cumulative knowledge and skills

How we will achieve this:

  • to provide children with 'learning hooks' (engaging experiences) at the start of each half term which will enthuse them and promote their language development
  • to create knowledge organisers which highlight to parents key subject specific vocabulary their children will develop each half term
  • to create whole school subject specific vocabulary maps to ensure consistency and development of technical vocabulary
  • to create layered learning maps for all year groups which will ensure that children cumulatively develop their knowledge and skills.

 

2. To further develop children's personal, moral, social and cultural development

How we will achieve this:

  • to develop a whole school approach to the teaching of PSHE through the introduction of 'Jigsaw' scheme of work
  • to provide our children with the knowledge and skills required take responsibility for their own mental well-being through the introduction of mindfulness
  • to provide our children with a rich variety of opportunities to develop their personal, social and emotional skills outside of the school curriculum e.g. visits, visitors to school and after school activities.

 

3. To continue to increase the percentage of children who exceed the expected outcomes for writing at the end of EYFS and Key Stage 1

How we will achieve this:

  • to embed 'Talk for Writing' across our school
  • to encourage children to incorporate their 'layered learning' into their independent writing
  • to create further opportunities for our EYFS children to develop their fine motor skills
  • to encourage our EYFS children to write with greater independence
