School Improvement Plan
Marlborough’s School Improvement Plan (SIP) runs from September – July. It is a yearly plan that aims to move the school forward in all aspects of school life for children, parents. staff and governors.
What is the School Improvement Plan?
The School Improvement Plan (SIP) contains the targets the school has set for the next academic year. The targets are set following an analysis of:
- The previous years’ performance
- Any government/local authority initiatives
- Recent Ofsted Monitoring Reports
- The areas of the school wishes to improve through consultation with parents, pupils, staff and governors
Marlborough is constantly looking at ways to improve the education and life chances of the pupils in our care.
We are always working on many different areas of improvement throughout the school year, but the School Improvement Plan focuses on the key priorities which would bring about measureable outcomes for our pupils. Listed are the main priorities for the next year. The priorities of the School Improvement Plan are organised under 7 headings:
- To raise attainment and achievement for all pupils
- To improve the quality of teaching
- To promote responsible behaviour and safety
- To continue to offer a broad and balance curriculum
- To continues to develop the quality of leadership and management across the school
- To maximise the use of all buildings and grounds together with amenities within Birmingham and the wider area to provide safe and exciting learning experiences
- To develop as a learning community providing extended service in partnership with the local community
The SIP’s priorities and measurable achievements are assessed every half term by the Senior Management Team and members of the school community and these outcomes are reported to the Governing body by the Head Teacher.
Parents are consulted throughout the year on new and key initiatives and parents are encouraged to return questionnaires as these are an important source of opinion that feed into the SIP process.
Children are an integral part of the on - going assessment of the SIP. Their views are collected through pupil questionnaires, the School Council and the Eco Committee meetings.
