School improvement targets (our key issues) are agreed following our on-going school self evaluation. We make use of the Education Endowment Foundation in prioritising our school improvement work, or for development work that may not feature in our key issues. This year we are continuing to work on developing a growth mindset to support pupil resilience; further developing digital technology; ensuring focussed feedback supports pupil progress, particularly in embedding phonics to develop spelling fluency; and further encouraging parental involvement through Class Dojo.
Our current key issues have been set as:
Improve attainment in phonics and spelling in KS1 and EYFS so that more pupils reach the higher standard
Improve the work of governor monitoring so that governance is more effective
Develop the system for assessing without levels across all subjects
Ensure that provision for science is at the same high level as that of English and maths
Ensure that changes in staffing are well supported so that impact is positive on all pupils in all year groups
Ensure progress improves across KS1 and is maintained at KS2
