School Improvement Plan

School Improvement Plan



Our Standards and Quality Report details the main achievements of the school over the last 12 months. Copies are readily available in school. Our plans for future improvement over the next year are detailed in our School Improvement Plan 2018-19. Again, copies are available in school for all parents.  Our priorities are displayed on one of our main walls in school and discussed with parents at Parent’s Nights and other consultation times. We appreciate feedback given and use this to develop future plans.


Our priorities for this session are to engage the principles of ‘A Curriculum for Excellence’ in the ways highlighted below:


  • Priority 1: Improvement in attainment, particularly in literacy and numeracy.
  • Priority 2: Closing the attainment gap between the most and least disadvantaged children.
  • Priority 3: Improvement in children and young people’s health and wellbeing.
  • Priority 4: Improvement in employability skills and sustained, positive school leaver destinations for all young people.


The Self-Evaluation Process


We are continually developing as a school which reflects and evaluates its practice. We work together, using the Quality Indicators in ‘How Good is Our School? 4’ (HMIE, 2015) and ‘Shining the Light of Christ’ (SCES, 2009). 


Quality assurance procedures include:  


  • Classroom and peer observations.
  • Learning walks around the school.
  • Sampling children’s work.
  • Planning and tracking meetings.
  • Staff meetings and staff development.
  • Pupil involvement in self-evaluation.
  • Parental involvement in self-evaluation.
