School Improvement Priorities

School self-evaluation is a continuous process which comprises of a number of key components that collect information and evidence about the standards in the school. These are then analysed, collated and the findings are used to appraise achievements and identify priorities to be pursued to improve the quality of teaching and learning. Newton Primary School involves all stakeholders in the school self-evaluation process. Each September a School Improvement Plan is written which feeds into TOPs (Termly Operational Plans). Targets are derived and actions implemented. As the school year progresses it may be necessary to amend targets inline with the changes in the world of education.

Priorities for improvement 2018 - 2019
Here at Newton Primary School, we believe we consistently operate as a good school and demonstrate instances of outstanding practice. The priority for improvement is to move to the next level offering good or better learning across the school at all time to all the pupils. The school used evidence from its self-evaluation to identify key steps that will move the school to the next level. These are as follows:

  1. At least 80% pupils (8/10) attain the phonic standard in Year 1.
  2. Pupils entering KS2 who have not met phonics threshold receive daily phonic lessons, underperforming spellers also access phonological awareness sessions
  3. At least 85% of all pupils achieve at least ARE in all year groups
  4. Floor level targets are met at the end of KS2
  5. Ensure the number of pupils achieving a greater depth of learning within age related expectations is at least in line with national comparisons at the end of KS1 and KS2 in R/W/M
  6. End of year expectations in Year 2 are in line with National expectations for pupils working at a greater depth.
  7. End of year expectations in Year 6 are in line with National expectations for pupils working at ARE and ARE+
  8. To enable governors to continue to challenge and support the school in continuing to drive improvement to provide outstanding provision
