School Development Plan 2017 - 18

LaudatO Si - Making a difference

We will be working closely with our federation of schools to put in place many of Pope Francis' recommendations from his encyclical entitled 'Laudato Si'. The children will look carefully at the world and ways that they can make a positive difference. We will also link our recent work on mercy into this strand.

GOOD OUTCOMES IN WRITING FOR ALL

St Mary's has made good progress in developing its English curriculum over the last few years but we are keen to further enhance our provision for writing. We will be focusing on early and emergent writing as well ensuring good outcomes for more able writers.

CELEBRATING INCLUSION

We are enhancing our structures and provision to further address the individual needs of our pupils. We are keen to maintain good outcomes for all pupils regardless of SEN, EAL, gender etc.

RAISING THE PROFILE OF MENTAL HEALTH AND WELLBEING

Last year we introduced a new PSHE scheme and alongside partners from our Local Authority, we are keen to develop our understanding and provision for positive mental health and wellbeing with the whole community. We will work alongside Kate Murphy (LA consultant) and colleagues from the Clifton Diocese.

DEVELOPING LEADERSHIP (INCLUDING GOVERNANCE)

We are focused on preparing for a new and exciting educational landscape alongside our Local Authority and Diocesan partners. Working closely with a consultant from Clifton Diocese we will review, celebrate and enhance our leadership capacity as governors to ensure that we are consistently good in all areas.
