School Improvement and Development Plan 2017 – 2018

Aylsham Learning Federation staff and governors have been involved, throughout the process, in developing this plan. We are fully committed to improving the quality of teaching at BVS. This strategy is a continuation previous plans carried out as we seek to further improve outcomes for pupils. The plan has been informed by: the school’s self-evaluation, close monitoring, data analysis, and analysis of Ofsted ‘Trails’.

The plan details the actions to be taken by the school – with clear costings where required. Progress against the plan will be monitored regularly through ALF Governors meetings – with different committees focusing on different sections of the plan. It will be reviewed and revised at the end of the academic year as a result of a comprehensive self-evaluation of available data and other key performance indicators.

The SIDP is a working document and will be amended and revised, as and when is necessary to respond to particular circumstances or diagnostics.

The Aylsham Learning Federation will look to harness the capacity across the federation to help drive improvement. Where necessary we will work with our Aylsham Cluster Trust partners and other outside agencies, such as Norfolk LLEs (Local Leaders of Education), to ensure that we have the required knowledge and expertise to ensure we secure our planned improvements.
