VISION OF OUR SCHOOL
We are working together to promote children's learning in a stimulating manner. We agree high standards in Teaching and Learning are the focus of our school. We want all children to be valued as individuals, to be praised and rewarded for all achievements, where differences are celebrated.
Leadership and Staffing
The leadership team and governors have a strong vision and purpose to lead high quality teaching and learning. We aim to develop subject leadership roles to ensure rigorous monitoring and evaluation in their subject. We strive to ensure that all teaching is consistently good or better. Through performance management, we identify plans for future staff development.
The governors care about our school staff and children. They ask difficult questions, accept responsibility for key decisions and challenge the school in order to raise standards.
We aim to develop and embed a creative curriculum that gives children time to reflect upon, contribute and have ownership of the content. The curriculum over the next five years will be richer, more engaging and exciting with a strong emphasis on Mathematics and English skills development. We will focus on improving and developing continuous provision in our early years setting.
We will sustain our focus on standards and personalised learning. We will ensure that every child reaches their educational potential. English and Mathematics will remain a high priority to ensure standards remain high. Rigorous monitoring and evaluation will play a major role in promoting expected or better progress for all children.
We provide high quality on-line resources to improve teaching and learning for parents and pupils. New resources are updated on a regular basis. E-Safety is a high priority. All staff will continue to attend e-safety training and new staff are inducted, to raise awareness and understanding of current issues which may be harmful for our children. All children will participate in annual programmes of e-safety training. We will continue to request that parents engage in responsible on-line monitoring.
We strive to maintain and improve established links with parents and the community.
We are developing new outdoor resources for KS1, to provide a stimulating play environment. We will renovate the
outdoor learning area for Early Years which will enhance outdoor provision. We have plans to increase the nursery intake from 30 to 45 children. We have a rolling programme to maintain and develop the buildings.
Health and Safety
The Health and Safety of staff and children will continue to be of a high quality. We have systems in place which ensures regular reviews and maintenance of the indoor and outdoor environments.
This vision has been shared by staff, children, governors and parents to ensure a successful, bright and happy future.
