Millfield Primary School

School Improvement Plan

Aim

The aim of our school improvement plan is to set out a cycle of actions that reflects a commitment to continuous self-review and improvement.

It outlines the improvement or development opportunities that the stakeholders in the school have identified as being the main priorities to be addressed in order to raise standards.  It identifies the actions, resources, responsibilities, measurable milestones, targets and success criteria associated with each opportunity and prioritise them to make best use of available funding or resources.

The targets below were developed with members of the school Governing Board at a meeting in school on Friday 3rd September 2021.

At the heart of all the targets set in this plan for this academic year is a focus on a return to a more normal school experience for pupils (and staff) and identifying and addressing learning gaps that have developed over the past 18 months.
