To narrow the gap between disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged children throughout the school


Priority 4

To continue to develop the role of SLT and middle leaders


Priority 5

To develop all members of staff understanding of SEND, enabling all learners to be appropriately provided for and outcomes for SEND children to improve


Priority 6

To develop our pastoral care of children including the teaching of PSHE, development of a pastoral lead and our core values.
