School Improvement Plan

The School Improvement Priorities identified for 2017/2018 are:

Effectiveness of Leadership and Management

· To ensure the school assessment system is reviewed following introduction of new assessment materials with a focus on measuring impact especially for vulnerable groups and high achievers (G&T).

· To ensure leaders and governors have a deep and accurate understanding of the school’s effectiveness and Catholic Ethos of the school informed by parents, pupils and staff views.  And use this to focus on improving impact of their actions.

Quality of teaching, learning and assessment

  • To ensure all children including vulnerable groups, especially disadvantaged children make realistic and sustained progress across the school with teachers identifying and supporting any pupil who falls behind and enables almost all to catch up, checking understanding systematically and offering timely support.
  • To continue to develop next step marking and feedback which drives pupil progress and response to marking and should be evident from pupils.

Personal development, behaviour and Welfare

  • Encourage our pupils to work alongside us to further improve information to prevent all forms of bullying and develop information sharing platforms to support welfare staff and children at lunchtimes in order to recognise good behaviour.  This will ensure all staff deal effectively with rare instances of bullying or behaviour
  • To support the prayer life of children at home, through use of materials to enrich the family and their involvement in prayer and establish a new RE Relationship and Sex Education policy and curriculum to support emotional wellbeing and resilience and develop further opportunities to ensure children make informed healthy choices about food, activity and understanding of society.   

Outcomes for Pupils

  • To improve teaching, learning and attainment in GP&S across the school to exceed national figures of 77% and ensure the combined figure for all three subjects exceeds the National figure to rise above the floor standard of 65% combined.
  • Focus on curriculum provision, resources and assessment in GP&S and promote writing for varied purposes to engage boys and ensure there is appropriate challenge for higher ability children.
