Development Focus 2018/19
The Governors, Leadership and staff at school evaluate the impact of all initiatives and actions on a regular basis. Through this process of self evaluation certain areas for development come to the fore and we then address these through the School Development Plan (SDP). These plans are often created through discussion with the children as well as other outside advisors such as members of the Southwark Diocese Board of Education (SDBE) and Local Authority.
Areas for School Development this academic Year 2018-2019:
- Building Learning Power- Guy Claxton’s work on supporting children to understand HOW they learn. We will be working on developing greater resilience, resourcefulness reflection and reciprocity for the children, not just in their learning but we trust, in their lives moving forward.
- Developing the new school vision, alongside the new framework and self-evaluation toolkit for the Statutory Inspecting of Anglican and Methodists Schools, to ensure all know and understand what we mean when we say we want all our children to be “Flourishing with God in life, learning and love”. .
- To develop further the good progression of Maths across the school year groups through the way we approach assessment, curriculum and teaching of this subject.
- Subject leaders will ensure the planning for the progression of skills for each curriculum subject across the three year groups in school is fully embedded.
- To develop the use of the new school behaviour log, improving the way we monitor behaviour in school, using that information to support specific children and monitoring any patterns that might appear.
- To ensure the greater depth level of Reading and Maths at Key Stage 1 (Year 1 and 2) remains at a high level.
- To develop the Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) curriculum in school and attain the Bronze Healthy Schools Award.
- To embed a new approach to appraisal, ensuring staff are deeply involved in their professional development and the development of the school.
- To ensure the excellent provision in Early Years Foundation Stage (Reception) remains highly responsive to the children’s needs, is inspirational and used as exemplary practice for others.
- To continue the school’s work alongside other schools in moderation and school-to-school support.
The school publishes results each year for the end of Year 2 teacher assessments, the phonics screening checks in Year 1 and the Foundation Stage Profile assessment results.
Please note summer 15 was the last time children in Key Stage 1 will be assessed by national curriculum level descriptors. Since September 2015, we assess against the national standards – we are aiming for all our children to reach the expected standard for their age and for many to reach Mastery level (this level requires them to demonstrate a depth of understanding that goes beyond the expected standard for their age).
