School improvement priorities

Our school improvement priorities run from November to November:

Improvement Priority 1

TO ENSURE A GOOD RATE OF PROGRESS ACROSS EACH KEY STAGE TO SUSTAIN GOOD ATTAINMENT BY THE END OF KS2

  • Pupils make at least expected and in many cases accelerated progress within each year group across all subjects
  • Diminish the differences between identified underachieving groups and their peers both in school and nationally
  • Ensure a new assessment framework is in place which matches the National Curriculum

Improvement Priority 2

ESTABLISH A RICH AND VARIED CURRICULUM THAT ENGAGES, MOTIVATES AND PREPARES OUR CHILDREN FOR SUCCESSFUL LIFE IN MODERN BRITAIN

  • Revise the approach to planning and teaching
  • Establish an agreed and consistent system of presentation, marking and feedback that supports rapid progress
  • Increase opportunities for pupils to practise their writing in subjects other than English

Improvement Priority 3

DEVELOP PARENTAL ENGAGEMENT TO ALLOW PARENTS TO ACTIVELY SUPPORT THEIR CHILD

  • Establish avenues for parents to have a voice and influence school policy
  • Strengthen parental learning opportunities
  • Establish a volunteer programme across the school
  • Develop a rich programme of community events
  • Utilise technology to establish effective two way communication with parents

Beechfield staff would like to thank the Governors for all they do for the school.
