1. For the achievement (progress and attainment) of pupils to be raised by staff and governors having a shared understanding of what constitutes "best practice" in the management of learning and a commitment to effective teaching and equality of opportunity for all pupils. This will result in more consistent provision throughout the school. (OIKP 1 & 3)
2. To establish effective and efficient assessment of pupil achievement (progress + attainment). From this we will have confidence in our ability to identify needs accurately and quickly. Together with Pupil Progress Meetings and full use of School Pupil Tracker Online the school will be able to provide the Governing Body with the information it needs to fulfill its duties. School leaders will be rigorous in checking standards. (OIKP 1 & 2)
3. To improve aspects of leadership, management and governance. (OIKP 3)
4. To improve achievement in Literacy especially in writing. See pages 18 and 19. This priority will result in staff having raised expectations, improved subject knowledge and the ability to deliver enough opportunities for pupils to practice and apply their learning across other curriculum areas. Resources and the learning environment will be improved including the use of digital resources in all classrooms. The role of the Literacy Leader will be developed as part of a Literacy Leadership Team. (OIKP 2)
5. To improve achievement in Numeracy especially in calculation, problem solving and investigations. See pages 18 and 19. This priority will result in staff having raised expectations, improved subject knowledge and the ability to deliver enough opportunities for pupils to practice and apply their learning across other curriculum areas.

The quality of leadership in Numeracy will be improved through the development of the Numeracy Leader as part of a Numeracy Team. (OIKP 2)
