School Development Plan
In this first year, we created a School Opening Plan. This set out the main school development priorities and ensured that we meet the ambitious milestones focused entirely on meeting the needs of the children and providing them with a high quality education.
Year two was focused on assimilating the multi academy trust teaching and learning strategies and embedding practice. All staff and governors contributed to this plan, reviewing this three times a year.
