School Development Plan

The School Development Plan (SDP) is the most important document for us as a school and indeed the whole school community.

The SDP: 

  • Outlines what we know about ourselves
  • Outlines what we see as our priorities for action
  • Puts these priorities into a timescale so that they are achievable and can be measured
  • Outlines the strategic priorities agreed by the Governing Body, Headteacher and Senior Leaders

The SDP plan is underpinned by detailed plans for each curriculum area.
