On our INSET day at the beginning of the academic year, staff and Governors met to discuss the school’s targets for the year 2018 - 2019. Each year the school is required to identify areas that need to be developed and possibly improved. These targets become the basis of the School’s Development Plan and throughout the year staff, Governors and children work together to achieve these targets. We would really like to involve parents and children in the process. Hopefully, by informing you about the targets, you will be able to work with us to ensure that this very successful school becomes even more successful!
This year we would like to focus our attention on progress. As a school our outcomes are always very positive and we always perform above the National Average. This year, we are slightly disappointed with progress and, although we have improved on last year, we feel we could do better, especially with regards our high attainers in year 6.
Therefore, our first 2 targets are linked to progress.
Priority One – To ensure that a higher % of pupils, in particular those with high prior attainment, make expected progress or better in writing.
Priority Two - To ensure that a higher % of pupils, in particular those with high prior attainment, make expected or better progress in reading.
Priority Three - To ensure pupils at KS 1 are given the opportunities to capture their learning and demonstrate the standard at which they are working in Reading, Writing and Mathematics.
Priority Four - To ensure all staff become proficient in using teacher assessment frameworks and national standardisation exemplification materials to make accurate assessments when tracking children’s attainment.
Priority Five - To put in place PREVENT procedures that will ensure EVERYBODY at Aldingbourne School are safe and have an awareness of how to keep each other safe.
