School Development Plan

School Development Plan

Before we arrive at our School Development Plan, we evaluate the performance of the school and record our findings on our Self Evaluation Form (SEF). In order to accurately evaluate the school, we take into account a range of information and views from different stakeholders, as listed below:

  • End of year and key stage data
  • Outcomes of book scrutinies and lesson observations by various leaders in the school
  • Pupil surveys
  • Parent surveys
  • Outcomes of audits carried out by external consultants
  • Outcomes of subject audits carried out by subject leaders
  • Quality Assurance feedback from School Improvement Partner
  • Ofsted outcomes
  • Feedback from governors
