SCHOOL DEVELOPMENT PLAN 2023 - 2024
Each year we analyse our data, all our monitoring and any information we have about our school. We use this to see what our strengths are, and where we can make improvements. The governors and staff are all involved in this, and we use the information we get from children and parents to make these evaluations.
Although we know we are a good school, we are always striving to be even better. We want to be OUTSTANDING!
