School Priorities - 2016/17

 

Priority One

Learning profiles identify that all teaching is at least good or better than good.

We will continue to use observations, pupil interviews, monitoring of learning in books and analysis of data to ensure that all teaching and learning is at least good.

We will continue to work with schools locally and beyond Greenwich to ensure that we continue to provide quality teaching and learning for all pupils, regardless of their starting point.

This year, we will record lessons being taught so that we can watch them back to identify where teaching and learning is successful and where improvements can be made.

Finally, we will take part in a national project to ‘coach’ teachers to improve their practice through collaboration and lesson study.

Priority Two

Standards in reading are in line with the national average at the end of Key Stage 2.

In 2016, the end of KS2 assessments were a lot harder than they had been previously.  Despite all the hard work put in by the children and staff, we did not achieve our usual standard.  However, this was reflected in schools across Greenwich and the country.

Experienced members of staff will complete observations of all staff leading reading sessions to identify areas of strength and areas for development.

Nightingale will work alongside consultants within the local authority to ensure we are using the best strategies to develop word recognition, understanding of text and to promote a love of reading.

We will build relationships with Woolwich Library to further promote reading for learning and reading for pleasure.

We will use online reading assessments in Years 4, 5 and 6 to gather accurate data regarding the progress of pupils.

Priority Three

The school to have clear definitions of ‘greater depth’ across the curriculum.

Our school mission statement is ‘Unlocking the full potential in everyone’.  We take this very seriously and want to ensure that our children have everyone opportunity to find their talent and develop it.

Subject leaders will liaise with other schools to develop clear statements of what excellence looks like in each area.

Subject leaders will continue to audit planning and learning to identify how the most able children are being challenged in their learning.

We will continue to develop a ‘growth mindset’ approach to enable children to become confident in making mistakes to support learning.

Priority Four

To continue to improve parental engagement across the school.

We benefit from having an amazing community who are incredibly complimentary about our school.  We remain a popular school; last year, 160 families applied for our 30 reception spaces!  But we know that we can do more to support our community and families.

We will continue our EYFS ‘Stay and Play’ provision in nursery and extend it into reception.

We will develop a range of opportunities for parents to come into the school to read with children, support clubs and trips.

We will run parent courses on the things parents would like help with.  These will include Singapore Maths, 10 Frame training, Phonics, reading and E-Safety.

Continue to develop the PTA to support us in raising much needed funds to improve facilities and resources within the school
