School Improvement Plan
Each year, most schools set a school improvement plan. This plan details key areas which the school are going to focus on during the coming year. Leaders and Governors take into account a range of information when deciding these priorities; self evaluation, parental feedback, academic results and internal monitoring.
Our school improvement plan is detailed below. If you would like any further information about this then please don't hesitate to contact the school office.
