Each year the school staff and governors consider the school's strengths and areas for development, with additional input from parents and pupils, to ensure standards, achievements, safety and well-being as well as leadership and management are on a continual drive for improvement. School Development Priorities are identified using external evaluations, alongside our own extensive and detailed self-evaluation processes -data analysis, learning and teaching monitoring, surveys, staff appraisal processes. The priorities often also reflect the national agenda for education. These priorities form a School Development Plan. Each school priority has a clear set of success criteria and associated actions, aimed to help the school achieve termly milestones towards the final outcome. The Leadership team reviews the progress against these targets termly. Staff training foci and budget allocation are based on school priorities.
