St Michael's is an improving school and our ambition is for it to be a place where children thrive and love learning.
We have listed a summary of our school improvement aims.
Leadership and Management
- Leaders to ensure a culture where all pupils make consistently strong progress considering their different starting points.
- All leaders use a range of evidence (e.g. learning walks, scrutiny of pupils’ work, talking to pupils) to evaluate learning and establish priority actions in English and math’s.
- To further improve the Tri-School on collaborative and planned discussion.
Teaching, Learning and Assessment
- To ensure all teaching and learning across the school is good to great.
- To use assessment and questioning to ensure good progress is made across KS2, to continue to build on from their learning in EYFS and KS1.
- To implement an engaging and varied curriculum promoting positive learning behaviours across the school.
Personal development, behaviour and welfare
- To improve attendance.
- To ensure the children are ‘living the values’ and that the work done with them on the whole school values has an impact on their everyday behaviour.
- To extend the consistent and effective behaviour management seen in the classrooms to the whole school.
Outcomes for children
- To focus on the explicit teaching of SPAG in KS1 so that the percentage of children who meet the end of key stage objectives is above national.
- To ensure that children in KS2 make good progress so that the results at the end of the key stage are in line with national.
Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural
- To have clear evidence of work completed in PSHE
- Increase opportunities for awe, wonder and refelction through a more creative and reflective approach to teaching and learning in RE and IPC.
- Include reflective questions in displays and in written feedback to the children.
