School Improvement Plan

Wheelers Lane Primary School is a caring school where we want everyone to feel safe, secure and happy, where there is a sense of belonging and community.

Each year we produce a School Improvement Plan which includes our priorities for the year and how we are going to achieve them. Information from parent, pupil and staff questionnaires is used to help us decide where improvements are needed along with school self-evaluation and monitoring.

Our targets for this year are:

  • Priority 1: Standards

    Target: The gap between children in receipt of pupil premium and those not nationally, will reduce on the previous year.
    Standards at the end of each Key Stage will be in line with or above National Average.
    Standards for every Year Group will show an increase on the previous year.
    All children will make a minimum of 1 year’s progress from their starting point with some making accelerated progress* (aiming for 80% expected, 20% accelerated).
    Whole school attendance will increase on the previous year.

  • Priority 2: Teaching, Learning and Assessment

    Teachers will plan and deliver high quality sequences of learning based on prior assessment,
    which enable children to achieved expected outcomes in each curriculum area. Children will learn
    through high quality experiences inside and outside the classroom. Assessment procedures and
    processes will be clear and consistent across school enabling
    tracking of pupils and groups.

  • Priority 3: Leadership and Management

    Target: Leaders at all levels will have a positive impact on attainment, progress, the quality of teaching and behaviour

    Leaders at all levels will have clearly defined roles that are understood by staff, pupils and parents

    Opportunities will be available for leaders at all levels to develop their skills

    Pupil leaders will have a positive impact on outcomes for children in school

  • Priority 4: Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare

    Target: Re-establish high standards of behaviour to ensure children’s safety, welfare and person development

    Develop the school culture of respect, appreciation, self-worth and fairness amongst children, staff and parents

    Restorative justice will be implemented by all staff across school

    Children will be safe and feel safe in school
