Priority One: Quality of Education

Ø  Teaching and learning to be consistently good or better in all year groups.

Ø  EYFS to be ‘outstanding.’

Priority Two: Leadership and Management

Ø  Professional development impacts the quality of teaching and learning, as a result of the improved pedagogical understanding of teachers.

Ø  Effective team leadership ensures teachers effectively plan for children with SEND and disadvantaged children.

Ø  Data analysis and monitoring of teaching and learning are especially focused on the progress of children with SEND and disadvantaged children.

Ø  Administrative systems within the school are highly effective and robust.

Priority Three: Attendance

Ø  Attendance to be in line with or above national average.
