Success for all, through learning together

School Improvement Plan 2023 - 2024

School self-evaluation is a continuous process which comprises of a number of key components that collect information and evidence about the standards in the school. These are then analysed, collated and the findings are used to appraise achievements and identify priorities to be pursued to improve the quality of teaching and learning.

Following the very successful Ofsted inspection that took place in February 2023, we have worked with the school community to identify our strategic priorities for further improving the school. The school improvement plan is the key document in our school that outlines our strategic priorities. This document drives action plans for leaders across the school in subjects or areas of focus. Staff appraisals are also linked directly to the achievement of these priorities. 

Priorities for improvement

All the evidence shows that Glen Park Primary is a highly effective school. The priority for improvement is to continue to offer high quality learning opportunities across the school at all times to all our children. The school has used evidence from its self-evaluation to identify key priorities for the forthcoming year in order to further enhance and improve the provision that we offer. This year, our plan is focused around 4 key areas:

  1. To expand our core offer through lowering the age range of pupil admission and providing nursery provision.
  2. To continue to design and develop a curriculum which is progressive, carefully sequenced and founded on key milestones.
  3. To refine and continue to strengthen the reading and writing curriculum and develop a KS2 reading strategy based upon the principles of reading for meaning.
  4. To continue to provide high quality support for staff and pupil mental health and well-being.  

  5. To develop the use of instructional coaching practices to further strengthen teaching and learning across the school.

Below is a summary of the priorities outlined within this year's School improvement Plan. For a more detailed summary of the school targeted priorities for this year please click here.
