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 2020 - 2021 are:
Religious Education:
Further develop 'Child Led Worship'.
Implement a mastery approach to teaching maths across the school.
Sustain excellent progress in writing for all children.
Implement the English mastery approach to the teaching of phonics (4 part-lesson) across the school. 
Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE):
Implement a whole school programme (Jigsaw) for the teaching of PSHE with a key focus on well-being. Implement a revised Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) curriculum following consultation with all stakeholders. 

Curriculum Development:

Review the History curriculum design and implementation. 
Review the Design and Technology (DT) curriculum.

Evaluate the implementation and impact of the revised Geography and Art curriculum. 


Please watch out for regular updates on these areas in the newsletters and on the website.
