School Improvement Plan
School Improvement - Main Priorities 2023 2024
Every year we write a School Improvement Plan which outlines the key areas we have identified as an area for focus, improvement and development throughout the this and the next academic year. The improvement plan is written in conjunction with stakeholders and is written in line with the new budgetary year.
Priority 1: Further raise the attainment and progress of identified disadvantaged children
All children must make good progress and achieve well in line with their abilities and starting points on entry to school. With this objective we will focus on barriers to learning and how we can support children, staff and parents/carers to ensure all our children achieve at their very best.
Priority 2: Ensure curriculum across all subject areas and further share and promote achievements across wider school community
Nelmes Primary School has a clear enrichment offer for all children and with a new arts enrich lead we will audit and evaluate our offer along with a focus on developing opportunities within the curriculum to try new and varied activities that develop character, motivation and pursue wider goals. Research by the Education Endowment Foundation has also found a link between enrichment and higher attainment in reading and maths.
Priority 3: Ensure effective and consistent approach to assessment across all subject areas, across the whole school
Staff assess children on a day to day basis and each session to each session. Children are also encouraged to assess their own learning. This objective will focus on expectations for formative and summative feedback across the whole curriculum to make sure that the feedback children receive has impact on their progress and attainment.
