Transformation Plan for 2022/23
As a school we are committed to raising student achievement. Each year our ‘Transformation Plan’ takes an in-depth look at all elements of school life. Areas under analysis include:
- curriculum planning, delivery and outcomes;
- personal development, behaviour and welfare; and
- leadership and management.
In each area we seek to identify our strengths, gain a deeper understanding of our areas for development and then come up with a 12 month plan to bring about sustainable improvement. In 2022/23 our key priorities are as follows:
- To ensure that students make outstanding progress in all subjects. A new intervention log will be introduced to monitor and support those students who are at risk of underperforming.
- Continue to support the small number of students with SEND and those from a disadvantaged background. These students will be discussed first at all leadership meetings and targeted support put in place as and when required.
- To revisit the curriculum intent statements and schemes of work to ensure that each lesson, and series of lessons, build towards clearly defined end points.
- Continue to raise the profile of Higher/Degree level Apprenticeships as an alternative to university.
- Conduct a review of the School’s Dress Code Policy, consulting all key stakeholders to ascertain their views.
- Continue to evaluate and refine our approach to mental health, in particular by ensuring that the school updates the website to include signposts directing parents and students alike to support. Ensure all of the different elements of Mental Health provision are brought together in one cohesive document.
- Use the newly appointed Student Support Advisor to effectively monitor student absence and support those students at risk of persistent absence. Refining our current approach to attendance will make achieving our 96% target realistic.
- Enhance our student rewards system so that achievements are recognised and valued.
- Introduce the Post-18 Pledge Passport. This should support students with their involvement in extracurricular activities and strengthen their university/Degree level Apprenticeship applications.
- Continue to look at ways to reduce staff workload, without having a detrimental impact on the education of our students.
- Active student recruitment to ensure that the School remains popular in 2023 and beyond.
