Our School Improvement Priorities

All the evidence shows that Ashmount is a good school. The priority for improvement is to move to the next level offering consistently outstanding learning across the school at all times to all pupils. The school used evidence from its self-evaluation to identify seven key steps that will move the school to the next level. These are as follows:

Priority 1:

Improve the quality of learning for all pupils in English with particular focus on the opportunity to develop oracy, reading and writing in all curriculum areas so that language use, and writing are modelled in all curriculum areas for the children.

Priority 2:

Develop and implement systems that will help accelerate progress and ensure greater consistency for Pupil Premium groups of children across the school to ensure we narrow the gap.

Priority 3:

Embed systems to ensure the role and expertise of senior leaders in developing middle leaders to more effectively drive school improvement.

Priority 4:

Embed systems to ensure governors are effective and have a good impact on improving outcomes for pupils and have a clear understanding of data. 

Priority 5:

Systematic support for the development of parental understanding and skills so that they are more effective at supporting their children with their learning.

Priority 6:

The development of a coherent plan to embed the schools response to equalities with particular focus on the protected characteristics with focus on gender identity around all aspects of the school’s work.

Priority 7:

CPD for individuals and groups (linked to subject improvement plans).
