School Development

At St Agatha’s we believe that all children thrive in an environment in which they are happy, challenged and secure. Our aim is always to provide the best education and experience for pupils throughout their time at our school. 

Each year the Governors and Senior Leadership Team write a School Development Plan which identifies the key areas of focus for our school. These areas are identified through analysis of the progress our children make, evaluation of school strengths and identification of key areas to further develop. 

The development plan is in constant use by both staff and governors, in order to monitor and evaluate progress against identified priorities. Day to day monitoring of the school development plan is the responsibility of the Headteacher together with the Senior Leadership Team and teaching staff. 

The Governing Body receives regular reports on progress and contributes to the monitoring process through school visits and committee meetings. At the end of the year, judgements are made about whether a target has been achieved, whether further work is needed to consolidate improvement or whether a different set of actions is required. 
Some of the key areas identified for 2022 - 2023 are:
Religious Education:
Further develop 'Child Led Worship' throughout school.
Ensure consistency of implementation of maths mastery from YN to Y6. 
Measure impact on pupil outcomes from their 2022 starting points.
Ensue all children make at least expected progress in writing from previous Key Stage starting points. 
Accelerate progress of children in KS2, where not in line with age related expectations. 
Implement a full progression of early phonics through the school – Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised. 
Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE):
Further develop a whole school approach to online safety in line with DfE guidance September 2022. 

Curriculum Development:

Implement a revised curriculum for science, history, geography, art, design and technology.
Subject leaders effectively monitor the implementation and measure impact of their area of responsibility.
