School Improvement Plan and Vision for the Future

2015 – 2018  Strategic Plan

Picture of Larkrise Children

The Governing Body of Larkrise has produced a three-year strategic plan that sets out our priorities and describes the important milestones we need to achieve along the way. This includes our vision, four strategic priorities and the values that underpin all we do. We’re now (2017/18) in our final year of the three-year plan. Our strategic plan was compiled with ideas from our children, parents and teachers. We also visited excellent schools and researched what makes them excellent so that we apply the lessons at our school. Our governing body includes experts in primary education which has been very helpful and we aim to build upon the many excellent aspects already in place at Larkrise – for example the behaviour of our children is superb and the quality of our teaching transformed over the last small number of years. This plan focuses upon our priorities moving forward and balances what and how quickly our children learn alongside a commitment to develop and support them in all kinds of other different and exciting ways.

We have identified key objectives against each of these strategic priorities. These key objectives, shown in the Strategic Plan Table document below, are specific activities we have set as clear milestones to reach in each of the next three years.

A separate document, the School Improvement Plan (SIP), produced by the Headteacher and her staff, transfers these strategic priorities and key objectives into a yearly plan with more detailed actions, measures and targets for 2016-17. We’ll upload our latest SIP as soon as possible.

Beyond the next three years

This year, we’ll be updating the next three-year strategic plan. We’ll be doing this alongside our Dream School project. The Dream School project was started in 2016/17 and aims to create our ambitions for the next ten years. It is a long term framework that helps us make important decisions and set our course for the long term. So far we’ve had children, staff and parents tell us what they want in their Dream School. Next we’ll be brining this information together and sharing more throughout the year and working with our new Headteacher to within that process. See the governor blog for the latest on the Dream School project.
