School Improvement Priorities
Working with key stakeholders, we have our school improvement plan which guides us with our next steps. Here are some of the initiatives we will be working on:
Raising Attainment , particularly in Literacy and Numeracy
Raising attainment in reading and writing.
Key focus on reading and daily writing for all pupils with the implementation of Active Literacy. Teachers will be trained in this approach.

Key focus on numeracy and improve outcomes across counting, place value, addition and subtraction and multiplication and division.
