How we are improving

We are currently working very hard to improve our performance and as of January 2021, we have a new Head Teacher to lead us back to being a ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ school. We have ambitious plans to improve many aspects of school life, including:

  • To build capacity for sustained improvement by investing in and developing leadership at all levels.
  • To improve SEND leadership, curriculum and individual support, ensuring that all provision matches the needs of all pupils.
  • To improve the provision for all pupils in the EYFS, ensuring that pupils know and remember more, by:
    • developing the progressive sequencing of the curriculum
    • enriching our environment and enhancing how the pupils access learning in the setting
    • developing our interactions within the environment to extend learning
  • To increase the percentage of pupils who achieve age related expectations in reading at the end of reception, year 1 and year 2.

If you have any questions about these roadmaps or our detailed plans for improvement, we would be very happy to talk to you about this — please contact us.
