School Evaluation

Nurture, Aspire, Achieve

Continuous, open and honest self-evaluation is at the heart of our school improvement plans. In-line with OfSTED's recommended approach we focus upon six key areas:

  1. Overall effectiveness
  2. Effectiveness of leadership and management
  3. Quality of teaching, learning and assessment
  4. Personal development, behaviour and welfare
  5. Outcomes for children and learners
  6. The effectiveness of early years and sixth form provision, where applicable

These plans are systematically reviewed throughout each phase of the school improvement cycle by our Governors and school improvement advisors from Leeds City Council. They are working documents which are frequently updated to reflect new evidence as it becomes available.

If you have any questions about the statements which we have made please feel free to discuss them with any member of staff or Governor.

Raising standards is the focus of the School Improvement Plan. In the plan we have six key priorities for 2017-8:

Key Priority 1 

To raise the standards of attainment in Mathematics at the end of every year group so that the combined RWM percentage at the end of KS2 is closer to national.

Key Priority 2

To further improve children’s emotional well-being, engagement and attitudes to learning.

Key Priority 3

To raise standards of attainment in reading at the end of every year group so that combined Reading, Writing and Maths at the end of KS2 is closer to national.

Key Priority 4

To engage in the ‘Achievement for All’ programme to raise attainment for the most vulnerable children.

Key Priority 5

To support the Governing Body to work towards the Charter Mark at the minimum of bronze level.

Key Priority 6

To continue to develop writing provision in Early Years as evidenced by an increase of GLD to at least National average.
