School Development Plan

Updated: 2018/19 School Development Plan Information

The school development plan for the current academic year has been in place since September. However, the plan has recently been updated to include reference to the recent Ofsted inspection (see separate 'Ofsted' tab). The Ofsted improvement priorities are referenced in our plan in bold.  

This academic year,  although the SDP is in place, we have put in place actions during the year to actively gain feedback from our parents with the aim of strengthening the relationship between the school and home. 

To find out more about the Parents Forum updates, please see the relevant section under the 'Parents' tab.
