School Improvement

St Paul's is a continuing improving school and our ambition is for it to be a place where children thrive and love learning.

We have listed a summary of our school improvement aims.

St Paul’s School Improvement Priorities 2016-17

Teaching & learning and Pupil Achievement

  • Have high expectations for all writing, and to ensure that the quality and method of teaching in writing creates challenge for all that develops craft and mastery (with a strategic longer term view of developing and challenging pedagogy (incorporating greater celebration of ‘craft and mastery’) across the curriculum).
  • Ensure that pupils make consistently strong progress as they move through the school and that we are clear what “meeting year group expectations” looks like at the end of each year group.
  • Understand, with greater precision, the needs of groups of learners, particularly those for whom the school receives Pupil Premium, and to tailor learning opportunities and experience more closely to identified need.
  • Improve the quality of opportunity for all learners in the school to thrive and to make rapid progress.

Behaviour and safety                

  • Teachers need to ensure that pupils’ pride in their school is reflected in the presentation of their work in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 and consistently in all work books/activities.
  • Through the PSHCE curriculum, add detail to curriculum map to support the childrens knowledge and understanding of difference in people and experience, that help them to manage risk and keep themselves safe e.g. road safety, local gang cultures and streetwise savvy.

Effectiveness of the Early Years

  • Increase the incidence of written text and words in the outdoor environment
  • To be certain of the schools reception baseline on entry
  • Ensure that disadvantaged pupils continue to get the support they need to perform as well as other pupils. 

Leadership and Management

  •  The most pressing need is to ensure consistency in practice and expectations to secure the long term leadership of the school.
  • Implement robust systems of monitoring and review that include greater focus on impact and accountability for senior, middle and subject leaders.
  • Develop systems for recording ‘over time’ judgements on school review and performance.
  • Review and further refine the curriculum maps and ensure they embrace and embed equalities and British Values and skills progression and support the ‘Christian’ character of the school.
