School Progress Plan

2019-2020 Priorities

Throughout Spring Term 2019, we undertook a series of activities to evaluate our provision. As part of this, we reached out to those closest to the school – pupils, staff and parents – to understand areas of strength and particular points for development. The findings have been incorporated into our School Progress Plan.

Over the next 18 months, we shall be focusing on three key areas which are aligned with our mission and will support us in bringing our vision to life. The three key areas are:

​Promoting Wellbeing

School Progress Plan

Empower our pupils to make informed choices and develop healthy habits to help them feel good about themselves and ensure a healthy body and mind.

Developing Resilience through Challenge

School Progress Plan

Empower our pupils to take risks with their learning without fear of falling short of expectations through the provision of the appropriate level of challenge.

Making Progress Visible to All

School Progress Plan

Empower our pupils through greater self-awareness and understanding of their own progress, achievements and areas for development.

Empower our parents by equipping them with the tools they need to best support their children in reaching their full potential.
