Every school has a School Improvement Plan. Our plan reflects priorities highlighted by parents, staff, governors and children.
To continue to maintain good standards in Maths and Writing throughout the school
This year, whilst our children performed well in end of year tests, we are aiming to further improve rates of progress in Writing. We will be introducing new spelling homework books which use a look, say, cover, write and check method with weekly spelling tests. We will use handwriting books with nads. As a Maths No Problem school, we will be continuing to use the Singapore Maths approach and using Maths No Problem, a text book based Maths scheme. We will also be using Hit the Button and Times Tables Rockstars to develop children's number skills and times tables.
To further improve Reading.
We will be encouraging children to read a wide range of books and introducing them to new vocabulary - Tier 2 words. Building on the work of Isabel Beck - 'Bringing Words to Life', we will be teaching children vocabulary, so that they encounter and develop their knowledge of a number of unfamiliar words.We want children to develop a love of reading, authors, vocabulary and stories.
To further develop a strong 'international ethos' and an understanding of how we all can contribute to our school, village and global community
We will continue to engage in social action and to be courageous advocates for change locally, nationally and globally. As a Gold Global Neighbour school, key to our curriculum is the promotion of 'international mindedness'. See our curriculum page for further details. We want to encourage children to think and understand how they can contribute to an increasingly global world.
To continue to maintain high standards of behaviour at all times
Visitors to the school often comment on the good behaviour of our children. This is because we focus on this at all times. We will continue to focus on maintaining high standards of behaviour throughout the school next year. Please see the 'Behaviour Policy' via the link below to 'Policies'.
To further improve the distinctive Christian character of the school
As a Church of England Primary School, we provide education within a Christian context. Our core values of 'Thankfulness, Love and Hope' are central to our vision for the school.
To further improve levels of punctuality and attendance
This year, we continue to focus on improving attendance throughout the school. We are aiming for all children to strive towards 100% attendance. An attendance cup is awarded again every month to the class with the best attendance. The best class will also be highligted in the Headteacher newsletter to parents.
Encourage our children to stay safe and healthy; continue to maintain a healthy lifestyle through the taught curriculum and extra curricular activities
In all that we do, we will promote the importance of healthy eating and staying safe.
