School Priorities

School Priorities for 2019-2020

Area 1: Leadership and Management

Objective 1:1

Develop the leadership skills of TLR and all subject leaders through support, training and coaching so that they focus on improving other teachers’ subject knowledge and pedagogical knowledge in order to enhance;

  1. the teaching of their subjects
  2. the appropriate use of assessment.

Success criteria:

  • TLR and subject leaders achieve their performance management targets, showing that incisive performance management approaches have ensured that middle leaders are made clear of the high expectations for their role and that they are held to account for their performance.
  • Subject leaders are aspirational for pupils to make good or outstanding progress in their areas of responsibility. This will be evidenced by a triangulated evidence base showing pupil progress.
  • Subject overview matrices map the intended progression in each subject.
  • Subject Leadership will be judged to be good and sometimes outstanding by July 2020
  • Subject leaders clearly articulate the intent of their subject’s curriculum, its implementation and impact to an external advisor
  • The actions of all leaders create coherence and consistency across the school to ensure that pupils benefit from effective teaching and consistent expectations.

Area 2: Pupil Progress

Progress in all year groups is in line with agreed ambitions for 2019/2020 in reading, writing, maths, science and foundation subjects.

Agreed Ambitions

  • At least 89% of pupils across the school will make at least expected (90 to 98 points) progress in reading, writing and maths.
  • At least 30% of pupils who are below or at expected in September 2019 will make accelerated progress in reading writing and maths in order to be working above Age Related Expectations.

Success criteria:

  • At least 89% of pupils across the school will make at least expected (90 to 98 points) progress in reading, writing and maths.
  • At least 30% of pupils who are below or at expected in September 2019 will make accelerated progress in reading writing and maths in order to be working above age related expectations.
  • The foundation subject and science assessment system will show an increase in pupils in each cohort working at greater depth from the autumn term 2019 to July 2020.

 

Area 3: Strategic Planning

The school’s curriculum is coherently planned and sequenced so that pupils cumulatively gain sufficient knowledge and skills.

Success criteria:

  • Senior leader and subject leader monitoring show that the school’s curriculum intent and implementation are increasingly embedded securely and consistently across the school.
  • The training schedule and senior leader and subject leader monitoring show that teachers have an increasingly firm and common understanding of the school’s curriculum intent and what this means for their practice.
  • The subject matrices show that each series of lessons contributes increasingly well to delivering the curriculum intent
  • Senior leader and SENDCO monitoring shows that the foundation subject and science curriculum is constructed and designed to give disadvantaged pupils and pupils with SEND, the knowledge and skills to achieve in life.
