Core Priority A

All pupils will make substantial and consistent progress to ensure national expectations and standards of attainment are achieved in each phase (especially in Reading, Writing and Maths).

Staff will plan, deliver and rigorously assess engaging and exciting series of lessons so that learners make substantial and consistent progress in all areas (especially in Reading, Writing and Maths).

 Core Priority D

To continue to develop and embed independent learning across the school through effective use of the outdoor environment and technology.
