High Expectations from Start to Finish
Every individual working within the federation will be committed to playing their full part in continually improving each child`s experience of school through the highest standards of care, teaching, learning opportunities, communications, environment and enjoyment from EYFS through to Y6 and beyond.
Effective Learning and Challenge for All
The impact of all teaching and interventions will enable all pupils to make at least expected or better than expected progress and will close gaps in attainment for individuals and groups of children. We will have an agreed understanding and expectation of outstanding teaching and learning, that begins in EYFS and continues through to the end of Y6, and the role that all staff have in achieving this.
Continuous Improvement, Review and Reflection
Individuals will know their strengths and areas of development. They will work to share their strengths and make improvements through a culture of coaching, a positive and robust appraisal system, CPD which is monitored and evaluated and includes a personal CPD file, professional development observations and feedback, research and study. The SLT will have a full understanding of the needs of all staff and will plan to ensure they can continually reflect on practise, impact and improvement; celebrating and sharing good practise across the federation and beyond.
Strong Leadership – In the Classroom and Beyond
There will be a clear and understood staffing structure and all staff will be knowledgeable about their roles and responsibilities and the expectations of their jobs. Leadership will be a real strength within the Federation; children leading in different areas across the curriculum and staff leading within their classroom and beyond.
There will be an understanding and acceptance that leadership brings with it, responsibility and accountability.
Nurturing and Innovative Culture
We will work towards an innovative, exciting and progressive curriculum across the whole Federation and to do this effectively, systems such as planning, finance, IT and assessment will be standardised and consistent.
We will ensure that transition at all level within the Federation is a well planned, individual, responsive and a positive experience for children and families
All staff will be proud to be part of the Federation and will be able to articulate the Federations aims and aspirations.
