Westmeads Community Infant School

School Development Priorities 2020-21

 

Key Priorities

 

1. Quality of Education

 

  • To review and adjust our fantastic curriculum to ensure that it provides exciting and appropriate opportunities for all children (with specific reference to the impact of Covid-19)

 

  • To embed our innovative assessment systems across the school to give a clear account of children’s progress and identify any areas for improvement

 

 

2. Behaviour and Attitudes

 

  • To be sensitive to the impact of Covid-19 but try to maintain our high expectations for attendance and review practice where needed

 

 

3. Personal development

 

  • To embed the work of our Rainbow (Wellbeing) Team to support vulnerable children and families, especially in light of the pandemic

 

  • To continue developing our school visitors, visits and minibus trips to enrich the children’s life experiences

 

 

4. Leadership and Management

 

  • To support Key Stage, Subject Leaders and Governors so that they have an accurate understanding of the school’s effectiveness and focus on the impact of their actions in key areas

 

  • To continue our work with staff to reduce any unnecessary workload to ensure that we prioritise both children and staff’s mental health and well-being

 

Specific areas for our focus are - outdoor learning; renewing our Artsmark award; setting up our own successful after-school provision; governors achieving the Governor Mark award.
