Our priorities for this academic year have been developed as a staff team and in collaboration with our governors. They form the main focus of our school development plan and take into consideration the impact and added pressures of Covid 19, as well as the areas we want to develop further as a school. We have identified the following key priorities:
Priority 1: To develop the curriculum so that it provides clear progression in learning and clarity about what knowledge children need to learn year on year.
Vision: All children will be engaged in a curriculum that enthuses and excites them to learn effectively, as well as providing the knowledge they need to progress successfully through each phase of our school and beyond.
Priority 2: To develop a coherent pedagogy for the teaching of writing across the school, so that there is a consistent approach to increase rates of pupil progress and attainment in writing.
Vision: There will be a clear, coherent, and consistent system in place that will sharpen the teaching and learning of writing across school to ensure that all pupils make progress in line with age related expectation or better. Pupils will have a clear view of what high quality writing looks like and will know how to plan, build, complete and improve their writing.
Priority 3: To enhance the personal development of our pupils by providing a wide range of opportunities to nurture, develop and stretch pupils’ talents and interests, including equipping them with the cultural capital they need to succeed in life.
Vision: Mattersey Primary School provides a wide range of opportunities to nurture, develop and stretch pupils’ talents and interests - artistic, musical, sporting, and cultural. The curriculum extends beyond the academic and provides for pupils’ broader development to enhance their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development with high quality experiences.
