We update the School Development Plan (SDP) every year following input from staff, pupils, parents & governors. The areas we are working to improve are chosen based on evidence from self-review. This means that our school self-evaluation ties directly into our plans for improvement. Each year of the plan begins on 1st April to link with the financial year and we focus on 3 areas for improvement each year. We work on the principle that we have a greater impact when our efforts are concentrated on fewer things; when we ‘Do less, better!’
Governors monitor the SDP each term via the Headteachers’ report & meetings with subject leaders. They provide the critical friend the school needs to ensure that the development plan is seen through.
