School development


The School Development Plan contains all plans for school improvement. This includes all subject areas and aspect plans such as Leadership, Teaching and Learning, Behaviour and EYFS. Within this large development plan is ‘The School Improvement Plan’ which contains high priority areas that will drive school improvement forward and ultimately raise standards.


The School Improvement Plan and all subject areas will be reviewed on a termly basis following the analysis of each Subject Leaders Situation Report. The new priorities will be set following the analysis of the data and thorough school self-evaluation.
