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. Eynesbury Church of England 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.
