'The headteacher knows the school well. The improvement plans accurately identify what
the school does well and where it needs to improve.' OFSTED 2022
To ensure standards are maintained and the school continues to develop, the Governing Body at Elmley Castle CE First School create an annual School Development Plan.
The School Development Plan enables the school’s vision to be shared and understood by the whole school community. Our aim is to work and learn together as a community in order to improve and be the best that we can be.
The School Development Plan should give everyone an understanding of where the school is going and what actions will be taken to ensure we get there. We set clear timescales for implementation and determine how to effectively use both human and material resources to support specific goals. The SDP also helps us plan and prioritise our budget and guides how we plan and organise staff training.
The School Development Plan is designed to give a sharp, clear focus to those aspects of our work which we believe are most in need of improvement. The SDP will be updated as we go through the year.
