School Improvement Plan
St James’ School Improvement Plan (SIP) is a vital school document. It is how, we as a school and governing body, identify keys areas for development in the our teaching and learning, plan for improvements in the coming year and review and evaluate ourselves as to how we have met our objectives. The SIP goes into great detail on specific areas including all the teaching subjects, SEND, premises and facilities and the governing body but below is an overview of our aims and objectives this year.
Our children follow a broad, integrated programme based upon the National Curriculum which aims to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding of the world and is a foundation for lifelong learning. We believe all children are entitled to learn and develop and we seek to educate the whole child in a Christian environment. We encourage our children’s physical, oral and social development and want them to be successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens both now and in the future.
This year our priorities are
- To ensure that pupils develop the essential skills for learning and independence
- To ensure that we have a 'fit for purpose', rigorous, robust assessment system in place for Reception - Year 6
- To develop and embed inference skills across both KS1 and KS2
- To set challenging targets for all pupils and, in particular, to reduce any gaps between pupils with SEND and other pupils
- To continue to forge strong links between our school, our parents and our Governing body
- To continue to forge stronger links between St James Primary and our local network of skills
