School Improvement Plan

We have identified three key whole school targets for the financial year, informed by outcomes in 2016-17 as well as broader priorities as we strive to become an outstanding school:

  • To secure further improvement in pupils’ progress in English and Maths across the school so that progress and attainment becomes more in line with County and National levels at the end of Key Stages 1 and 2.
  • To continue to develop a culture within school with clear policies and procedures which ensure and promote all aspects of SMCS and pupil welfare with a focus on behaviour and E-Safety.
  • To further improve the continuing professional development provided for all leaders and staff in order that it has a positive impact on teaching, children’s learning and school improvement.

In addition, each curriculum area and the Early Years have their own Action Plans.

The School Improvement Plan and the Action Plans are reviewed at the beginning of each half term by the teaching staff and Senior Leadership Team. Progress against the School Improvement Plan is monitored by the Governing Body each half term. All plans run across financial years in order that they tie in closely with the school budget. Completed plans are evaluated and new plans written every March, ready for the beginning of the Summer Term each year.
