School Improvement

School Improvement Planning

School improvement is determined by a number of factors:

  • Robust and effective school self-evaluation
  • Internal stakeholders’ views i.e. governors, staff, pupils and parents/carers
  • External stakeholder’s views i.e. Local Authority and Ofsted
  • The changing needs in a mainstream primary school setting

In order to constantly set a culture of high standards and pupil outcomes, the school must reflect and evaluate. Through a process of evidence-based self-evaluation, Summerlea has a good understanding of its strengths and areas requiring improvement. 

We have agreed the following will form the overarching principles of our School Improvement Plan.

In relation to the children

  • an emphasis on developing the whole child
  • ensuring consistently high quality teaching and learning
  • ensuring all pupils make good and better progress
  • continually working at closing the gap

In relation to the school culture and organisation

  • continually striving to build capacity and sustainability
  • building a culture of teamwork and collective accountability
  • ensuring high levels of staff satisfaction and fulfillment
  • strengthening partnerships and cross-school collaboration
