School Priorities

School Priorities for 2018-2019

Area 1: Leadership and Management

Increase the number of pupils achieving ‘mastery’ across English, maths, science and the foundation subjects through embedding the ‘Mastery Across the Curriculum’ initiative that was developed by the school in 2017/18.

Particular areas of focus:

Most-able pupils currently in the school are given work that enables them to make the best progress they can in reading, writing and mathematics (Ofsted November 2016).

Success criteria:

  • In order to raise the percentage of pupils achieving mastery in each subject between October 2018 and July 2019 train and support middle level and subject leaders to focus their triangulated monitoring and resulting points for improvement on learning activities from the ‘Mastery Across The School’ document
  • Teachers using techniques to achieve mastery will result in all teaching being good or better by July 2019.
  • Improving teaching through lesson study will result in all teaching being at good or better by July 2019
  • The improvement tracking system will accurately identify pupils working at greater depth in foundation subjects.

Area 2: Pupil Progress

To ensure that progress in all year groups is in line with agreed ambitions for 2018/2019 in all subjects across the curriculum.

Agreed Ambitions

  • At least 89% of pupils across the school will make expected (90 to 98 points) progress in reading, writing and maths.
  • At least 30% of pupils will make accelerated progress in reading writing and maths in order to be working above Age Related Expectations.
  • A greater proportion of pupils will achieve mastery in foundation subjects between October 2018 and July 2019.

Success criteria:

  • At least 89% of pupils across the school will make expected (90 to 98 points) progress in reading, writing and maths.
  • At least 30% of pupils to be working above Age Related Expectations or make accelerated progress in reading writing and maths to close the gap with their peers.
  • The refined foundation subject and science assessment system will show an increase in pupils in each cohort working at greater depth from September 2018 to July 2019.

Area 3: Strategic Planning

3:1 The partnership with parents is further developed so that the part they play in contributing to their children’s learning is maximized (Ofsted - November 2016)

Success criteria:

  • Raise the profile of the school amongst parents through informal meetings where parents can meet and chat with school leaders and the staff
  • Raise the profile of the school in the local community through articles in the newspaper
  • Parent view shows that over 80% of parents would recommend South Green Junior School

3:2 Develop the Thrive programme and the use of the Thrive room to address attendance issues, emotional literacy difficulties and parental engagement.

Success criteria:

  • 2 case studies show that pupils participating in the Thrive programme have improved their emotional literacy
  • Pupils participating in the Thrive programme make more than expected progress
  • Create opportunities and events in the Thrive Room in which hard to reach parents feel comfortable and confident coming into school, resulting in an increase in a wider group of parents engaging with school.
  • Additional strategies are introduced to increase the attendance of persistent absentees.
