School Development Priorities

At Lynch Hill School Primary Academy we continually strive to offer your children the best we can. In order to continue improving this year, our school development priorities plan for 2015 – 2016 is:

Pupil Performance

To continue to raise standards and accelerate progress so that all cohorts are exceeding national data for attainment and progress

Our main actions to achieve this are:

  • To ensure more able pupils are making good/outstanding progress in each year group across the school
  • To narrow the gap between pupil premium and non pupil premium students, in all core areas in all year groups
  • To improve outcomes in writing so that attainment and progress matches reading
  • To ensure all pupils make good or better progress in the new maths curriculum using new assessment criteria

We aim for our outcomes /success measures to be:

  • More of our ‘more able’ pupils to achieve level 6 equivalent
  • Gap to have closed in all core subjects for underperforming groups
  • Writing data to be at least in line with national expectations for all groups and more closely matches reading
  • Maths attainment to show greater % of pupils at secure/secure + or higher for their year group
  • Each year group to meet their trajectory targets

Teaching and Learning

To continue to improve the quality of teaching and learning so that progress and attainment meet Lynch Hill School Primary Academy targets and exceed national expectations

Our main actions to achieve this are:

  • Better use of data to inform planning and teaching
  • Subject leaders to ensure clear progression across the year groups in their subject area
  • Targets to be well used with pupils across the school to move learning forward
  • To support staff in the effective introduction of IPC and a new creative curriculum for all learners

We aim for our outcomes /success measures to be:

  • More of our ‘more able’ pupils to achieve level 6 equivalent
  • Gap to have closed in all core subjects for underperforming groups
  • Writing data to be at least in line with national expectations for all groups and more closely matches reading
  • Maths attainment to show greater % of pupils at secure/secure + or higher for their year group
  • Each year group to meet their trajectory targets
  • Performance management objectives and learning walks will show that quality of teaching and learning is consistently good or better

Safety and Behaviour

To create an environment where pupils and staff feel safe, valued and respected so that learning is optimised

Our main actions to achieve this are:

  • Develop exemplary attitudes to learning
  • Ensure school behaviour policy is consistently applied across all teams in the school
  • Promote SMSC and British values
  • Ensure staff and pupil well- being is given the focus deserved so all stakeholders feel valued

We aim for our outcomes /success measures to be:

  • Surveys will show that pupils feel safe, valued and happy
  • Performance management objectives and learning walks will show that behaviour for learning is consistently good or better across the school
  • Staff will report that they feel valued
  • Behaviour log will show a marked improvement in behaviour across all year groups

Leadership and Management

To improve the impact of leaders on outcomes and provision so that progress is outstanding across the school and for all groups

Our main actions to achieve this are:

  • For the SLT to effectively develop the role of year leaders and subject leaders so that they are all confident in the school’s data, the strengths and areas for development and fully understand school’s vision and how their role can impact positively on further future improvements
  • For Directors to challenge more over data and school performance and for SLT, middle leaders and Directors to have an even stronger understanding of school performance when compared to national data
  • For subject leaders and SLT to be confident in implementing and effectively monitoring changes to curriculum and to continue to ensure staff and pupils are ready for new tests in 2016
  • For clear strong links to be made between the primary and secondary school so that transition is seamless and LHEA is a preferred choice for parents
  • To ensure greater parental satisfaction with regards to access to staff, school communication, happiness of pupils and homework

We aim for our outcomes /success measures to be:

  • More of our ‘more able’ pupils to achieve level 6 equivalent
  • Gap to have closed in all core subjects for underperforming groups
  • Writing data to be at least in line with national expectations for all groups and more closely matches reading
  • Maths attainment to show greater % of pupils at secure/secure + or higher for their year group
  • Each year group to meet their trajectory targets
  • Surveys will show that pupils feel safe, valued and happy
  • Performance management objectives and learning walks will show that behaviour for learning is consistently good or better across the school
  • Staff will report that they feel valued
  • Behaviour log will show a marked improvement in behaviour across all year groups
