Our School Improvement Plan is driven by our vision for the school and our journey to achieving the long term aims in our Strategic Plan. It is informed by our regular monitoring and self-evaluation of our strengths and the areas where we want to improve further.
Below is a summary of our priorities for 2021-22:
- Continue curriculum review with a focus on diversity.
To ensure that our curriculum and the resources used to deliver this are diverse and reflective of our school community.
- Continue to monitor and support children who are disadvantaged.
To continue to evaluate and develop our support for the children who have been disadvantaged in some way or are deemed ‘disadvantaged’ as well as our Pupil Premium children, we will be looking into how to best support through NTP and target support in school. There will be an emphasis on mental health and readiness to learn with our new ELSA roles in school, working across the year groups.
- Access to the curriculum for children learning with SEND.
To ensure that our children learning with a SEND have equal access to the curriculum and receive appropriate work, differentiated so that their learning potential is maximised.
- Raise standards in writing across the school.
Continue the work begun this year to address gaps in writing and to raise standards across the school. This will be linked to the selection of key quality texts to inspire writing for purpose and audience. Identify high potential writers who have not made expected progress and support these.
- Develop our work on behaviour and trauma
Through participation in The Attachment and Developmental Trauma Awareness Program (2 year funded programme of evidence based learning and development to facilitate awareness and good practice in Merton Schools) to ensure a consistent approach to behaviour with a focus on trauma awareness and a whole school approach.
- CPD of staff in school
Ensure that the new Key Stage Leaders, Deputy Headteacher, Assistant Headteacher have support and training to implement their roles and responsibilities. Support of teachers new to leadership of curriculum areas.
