Each year our school decides what our priorities are for the coming year. We choose what to focus on by using a range of information such as -
- What our data tells us about areas of learning that pupils need additional support in or differences in the performance of groups such as boys and girls.
- New curriculum developments from the Department for Education or Ofsted changes which we need to implement.
- National initiatives and areas which all schools need to focus on for example assessment systems or new subjects being introduced into the curriculum.
- Changes to the way pupils are tested mean we may focus on training staff with new materials.
