School Priorities

School Priorities for 2017-2018

Leadership and Management

Objective 1: To strengthen the leadership and management of the school so that it is judged to be Outstanding by October 2019.

Particular areas of focus:

1) Senior and Middle leaders continue to build on the improvements made during 2016 / 2017 in order to move leadership in the school from Good to Outstanding, developing senior and middle leaders so that the school has a strong deputy and senior leaders who can effectively manage the curriculum and behaviour so that the headteacher can focus on moving the overall direction of the school forward.

2) Support the Governing Body in building on the improvements made in 2016 to 2017 in order to move leadership in the school from good to outstanding.

Pupil Progress 

Objective 2: To ensure that progress in all year groups is in line with agreed ambitions for 2017/2018.

Agreed Ambitions

  • 89% of pupils across the school will make 100 points progress or reach mastery in reading, writing and maths.
  • 30% of pupils will make accelerated progress in order to be working above Age Related Expectations or to ‘close the gap’ in attainment in reading, writing and maths.

Strategic Planning

Objective 3:  To progress the formation of a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT), with South Green Juniors as the lead school, following the resolution to convert to an academy which was passed in March 2017.
