School Improvement Priorities
Each year we look at how successful the school has been in the following four areas; Quality of Provision in the Early Years Foundation Stage, Quality of teaching, Quality of provision and Quality of assessment, feedback and support. Last year proved to be successful in many ways but obviously progress towards some targets was held back due to the Lockdown in March and many children not returning until September. We have carried some priorities over to this year’s School Improvement Plan (SIP) and will be focusing on filling any gaps for children who have missed any learning, whilst supporting their well-being with a recovery curriculum. Our biggest priority for 2020-21 is to improve reading and phonics. This is not to say this is not good enough but we feel it could be even better and we’d like to raise standards even higher. We can also see some quite large gaps in the children’s learning in phonics since lockdown due to this being such a specialise skill to teach for parents and carers. Our new reading books and phonics scheme will really help this and our staff are really focused on making sure our children make excellent progress.
