Last time I published my school’s development plan, I was surprised by how many people were interested. At Highbury Grove we have adopted the methodology we’d devised at KEGS. The criteria are posed as questions; this allows us to be evaluative in deciding how we’re doing. The live version includes columns of target dates, key SLT personnel driving each area and columns where we RAG rate our progress. We’ve just completed a review which was really useful in helping to kick-start some areas of activity. We also added in some things we thought of after the plan was written back in September.
This pdf version is published on our website:
Note, there are no data or inspection targets. This is all about processes driven by our sense of what is needed. It doesn’t cover all of our activities – just the things are new or need special focus this year. There’s another raft of activity embedded in our Reviews. That’s where all the attainment action is – in the detail at departmental level.
Samuel Rhodes is the Special School that we are co-located with. MiSST is the Music in Secondary Schools’ Trust that is based at our school; IC6 is the Sixth Form consortium that we’re part of.
