Summary of Park Lane School’s Development Plan
Priority One – Increase the amount of outstanding teaching to make sure that more pupils reach the highest levels of attainment by the time they leave the school, especially in writing (& Maths) by:
Making sure all pupils are equally challenged and supported, including those who find learning easier, so they make even more progress through KS2.
Ensuring that all marking helps pupils to understand better what they need to do to improve, and giving them time to act on this advice.
Priority Two – Ensure leaders and managers maintain their high expectations of the quality of teaching and pupils’ progress, which have increased since the school federated, by
Developing a whole – school approach to the assessment of writing.
Measuring the impact of the school’s work on different groups in even greater detail.
Priority Three – Ensure leaders and managers maintain their high expectations of the quality of teaching and pupils’ progress (particular focus on more able in maths), which have increased since the school federation, by ;
Ensuring children are given regular opportunities to apply their learnt skills to problem solving situations.
Ensuring marking is used to move the children’s learning forward and there is evidence of progress in books and progress is accelerated for the more able children.
