St Michael's CE Primary

School Improvement

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.
  1. 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.
  2. To implement an engaging and varied curriculum promoting positive learning behaviours across the school.

 Personal development, behaviour and welfare

  1. To improve attendance.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
