School Development Plan 2016 - 17
Every year the School Leadership team reviews the strategic plans for the future: improving progress and raising attainment are always our focus and we consider all aspects of our provision and practice to see where changes are needed. Often priorities for improvement remain part of the SDP for several years as we introduce and then embed new strategies and initiatives, and review the impact of our plans. The following information is a summary of our current SDP.
