Strategic Plan

Strategic Plan Overview 2015 - 2018

The Strategic Plan of Silverhill Primary School has been set by the Governing Board in order to provide clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction for the school.

Our Vision - At Silverhill our vision is to be an outstanding school that provides the highest possible standard of education for our children.  Our vision is for children to leave us well prepared for life's journey, wherever that may lead on their 'Learning Adventure' as a responsible, well-rounded global citizen.

Values/Ethos - We are passionate about enabling children to become confident, resourceful and well educated members of our society. In every context we promote high expectation, strong self-esteem, and high achievement in order to meet individual needs, be they educational or pastoral, and to allow each pupil to find a valued voice. We foster creativity and independence of mind, incite a love of learning and a life-long zest for education necessary for a successful and fulfilled future.

Our Aims - We aim, through constantly seeking the highest quality of teaching and learning, to enable our children to:

 - realise their academic potential and to be equipped to be successful in the next stage of their school career
 - be socially mature; demonstrating a high degree of emotional intelligence, empathy, understanding, tolerance and engagement with society upholding fundamental British values
 - possess effective life-long skills: resilience, resourcefulness and respect
 - develop appreciation and a love of life

Strategic Direction

With constant reference to the school's view and aims, the Governing Board works in partnership with the school staff to enable the implementation of the strategic plan.  In practice this is achieved through carefully constructed plans, which sets the actions for improvement for the current academic year and beyond.

Strategic Plan - key areas of priority of 2015-16

We have identified areas where we can work in close partnership with the school to enhance provision and improve the quality of our learning environment.

Priority 1 - Develop Community Links

We define community as our school pupils, parents, staff, grandparents and wider members of our local area. Our aim is to promote the role of the governors through maintaining a high profile at community events such as open afternoon, sports days, school fairs etc. to ensure the community have a greater understanding of the role of the Governing Board.

To strengthen this partnership we intent to keep the wider community informed through regular updates of news and events through the governor page on the school website.

Priority 2 - Promote Reading

A key priority for 2015-16 is to work in partnership with school to promote reading and we will seek to engage our school community by:

 - Committing to raising the profile of reading through regular partnership visits to read with the children

 - Actively engage the parental body to promote reading at home

 - Actively seek volunteers from our local community to promote reading in school and beyond

Priority 3 - Review our Assessment Framework

In line with recent changes to the assessment systems we will work in partnership with the school to gain a deeper appreciation of changes to assessment framework and understand the monitoring process to support school improvement.

This will be achieved through:

 - Training to increase knowledge of the assessment process

 - Analysis of data to understand the percentage of pupils making progress

 - Discussion with key members of staff

 - Benchmarking with local and national data
