STRATEGIC DEVELOPMENT PLAN ON A PAGE 2018 - 2023

We believe our students will thrive and achieve when they are the centre of their learning in a happy, caring and supportive environment, where the value of all individuals in our school community is celebrated’ 

 

 

The purpose of our work is to improve the life chances of each and every student attending Brook Green and this is the aim of our strategic plan.  Through our ongoing self-evaluation and review processes we have identified our key priorities and areas for development.  

 

Our strategic plan is developed through discussion by, and consultation with staff, governors, parents and students. The plan incorporates the school’s response to the recommendations made in our last Ofsted inspection in March 2018. All curriculum leaders identify in their own one year action plans how they will contribute to a number of our key priorities. 

 

Our plan does not necessarily cover every aspect of our planning or management but focuses on areas considered to be of a high priority or requiring innovation. In addition, the opportunities to support our students, staff, parents and carers offered after the completion of our plan will be seized upon as appropriate. 

  

As a leadership team we have a real sense of responsibility to ensure that we keep abreast of new practice, innovation and research to help us understand our students even better and inform our practice. It is therefore very much a working document that will be subject to regular updates. Its aim is to target the use of school resources, physical and human, in order to maximise levels of student attainment and development through high quality teaching and leadership in a clear and focused way. 

 

The Governors have a key role in monitoring the strategic plan, which they do through their board meetings. They form an integral part of our strategic plan and play a lead role in monitoring the actions and impact. Each governor is linked to a specific area/s and regularly visits these and reviews the work of the team. Governors act as critical friends to challenge and support the school in its work.
