School Improvement and Development Plan 2021-2022

The 21/22 School Improvement and Development Plan reflects and builds on learning points from the summer outcomes of KS4 and evaluation of the previous SIDP and our self evaluation. 

The plan is based around our three core values:

  • Achieve
  • Connect
  • Nurture



  • Ensure the sequencing of the curriculum across all subjects is robust and enables all students to build their knowledge and skills so they make progress
  • Develop teaching through CPD and reciprocal coaching so it is at the highest level and all teachers reflect on and improve their practice
  • Increase the level of challenge in lessons for all students.
  • Ensure standards of behaviour and attendance are as strong as they can be
  • Review our pupil premium plan to close the gap in achievement
  • Fully implement the SEND review plan
  • Implement plans for assessment at KS3
  • Develop a clear simple strategy for homework
  • Use catchup funding strategically to support specific students and monitor its impact over time


  • Develop stronger links with local primary schools’ colleges and 6th forms
  • Improve careers provision do links with local employers are embedded within the curriculum
  • Further improve clear, consistent communication with parents
  • Continue to develop links between subject leads across the Trust



  • Support the mental and physical health of students and staff
  • Develop understanding and respect of diversity and difference with staff and students
  • Push extracurricular activities so all students can participate
