School Improvement / Development Planning

We constantly look to improve the work of our schools and the outcomes for pupils. We prepare a School Improvement and Development Plan for each school which is the strategic document we use to focus our improvement work each year. These documents are updated throughout the year and evaluated for impact as they progress. 

Holy Trinity CE Infant School and Nursery School Improvement Key priorities

2016 - 2017 

  • To improve the tracking of pupil attainment and progress from Nursery right through to the end of Key Stage 1 in order to support the progress and achievement of all pupils from their individual starting points.
  • To improve the outcomes for children at end of KS1 so that attainment is at least in line with national expectations with a particular focus on reading.
  • To improve provision and practice throughout the EYFS so as to ensure high quality learning environments in all classes and increased accessibility of resources to support learning and independence.
  • To develop leadership and management focusing on developing middle leaders, SLT and governance so that all are fully informed as to strengths and weaknesses of school and are actively involved in monitoring and leading school improvement.
  • To develop the distinctiveness of Holy Trinity CE Infant School as a Church School in order to enhance the spiritual, moral and social development of all pupils.

Holy Trinity CE Junior School  Improvement Key priorities 2017- 2018 

To achieve improved outcomes for our pupils and continually improve the quality of provision for all children, our core strategic priorities for improvement and development are:

  1. Develop the pedagogy of reading to ensure that pupil outcomes in reading continue to improve.
  2. Further develop teaching and learning in grammar, punctuation and spelling and continue the trajectory for writing improvements including at greater depth.
  3. Ensure interventions are effective and there is clear and accurate evidence to demonstrate that pupils are making progress as a result of this.
  4. Strengthening assessment and its use across the foundation subjects (learning challenges, ICT PE).
