School Improvement Priorities 2021-22
Every year we identify key priorities to further improve our school. As well as the outcomes from our last inspection, we analyse our school results to identify areas for improvement. We also look for any issues which arise through lesson observations, scrutiny of pupils’ books or from discussions with pupils and parents. We also consider how best to respond to local and national initiatives.
Our key priorities for this year are as follows:
What are we doing about it?
We have additional training in place for teachers and support staff to further develop their expertise with teaching skills in writing, grammar, punctuation, spelling and handwriting as well as the basic skills in maths. We are reviewing our curriculum in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic to ensure children have enough opportunities to apply their skills across the curriculum and to take greater ownership of their learning. We are also involved in a number of special projects e.g. Maths Hub project involvement on Sustaining Mastery and an ENTHUSE Partnership to inspire young people in STEM (science, technology including computing, engineering and mathematics) subjects.
How you can help
Talk to your children about the written work they have been doing at school and support them with any homework we send home. Make sure your children are thinking about spelling, punctuation and handwriting when they are doing any writing at home and help them to understand how important these things are and no matter how old your children are please try to read with them as often as possible. This can include anything from comics, magazines, newspapers and books to shopping lists! Please also help your children to learn their spellings. We would also appreciate it if you could help your children learn their times tables and other key number facts.
