The Strategic Improvement Plan (SIP) is a one-year plan, and a three-year overview. The aims of the Strategic Improvement Plan are to raise standards, address OFSTED issues and accelerate progress through improving learning and teaching, the conditions for learning and the school as a professional learning community. This plan incorporates the views gathered from children, parents, learning support workers, teachers, senior leaders, governors and the regular monitoring visits of the local authority/sponsors and builds upon the progress made in previous years.

The School Improvement Plan has been organised into six catagories:

  • the quality of education (including EYFS)
  • behaviour and attitudes
  • personal development
  • the quality of education (intent & implementation)
  • leadership and management
  • learning environment
