Rift House Primary School Development Plan


 Key issue 1:       Outcomes for Pupils – revise assessment monitoring systems so that progress of groups of low and middle attaining children can be clearly measured. Ensure increase in progress for low and middle attaining children so that progress measures match or surpass national comparisons (especially in reading)


Key Issue 2:       Q of T Learning and Assessment– ensure that the typical quality of teaching in all phases continues to be never less than good, and improve the proportion of teaching that is typically outstanding. Ensure new systems for monitoring Q of T are embedded and built upon through appraisal systems. Ensure the new ‘senses’ curriculum is fully embedded.


Key issue 3:       Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare – Improved whole school attendance for identified groups of learners (especially SEND) and reduction in the number of children who are less than 90%. Refine and develop strategies which promote and support self-regulation around health, wellbeing and readiness for learning.


Key issue 4:       Leadership / Management – Develop and improve middle leadership in school and work in collaboration with Governing Body to improve knowledge and understanding of school systems, policy and protocol. Revise and develop communication systems with parents/careers and external services.


Our School Development Plan is a pivotal document in the life and activities of our school. It is linked to our School Evaluation Form and focuses on the achievement of pupils, the quality of teaching, leadership and management and the behaviour and safety of pupils.
