School Improvement Priorities 2017-18

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:

Improve teaching even further by:

- ensuring that all lessons engage pupils fully in their learning, including the most able, so that they achieve consistently well.

- giving all pupils opportunities to respond to teachers’ comments about how to improve their work further.

- ensuring that pupils’ understanding in lessons is checked by teachers and activities are adapted accordingly to meet the needs of all pupils, including the most able.


Accelerate pupils’ progress in writing to reach even higher standards by:

- encouraging the use of a wider range of language and punctuation for effect, especially when writing in a formal style and about non-fictional events.

- building pupils’ confidence to express their ideas in increasingly complex sentences and better thought out paragraphs.

- providing opportunities for all pupils to develop and apply their writing skills in all subjects.


Accelerate pupils’ progress in Maths to reach even higher standards by:

- providing opportunities for all pupils to develop and apply their maths skills in a range of problem solving contexts.

What are we doing about it?

We have additional training in place for teachers and support staff to further develop their expertise with teaching basic skills in writing, grammar, punctuation, spelling and handwriting as well as the basic skills in maths.  We are reviewing our curriculum to ensure children have enough opportunities to apply these skills across the curriculum and to take greater ownership of their learning.

How can you help?

Talk to your children about the grammar 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.
