School Improvement

At St Mary's, our culture is one of continual improvement - staff aim to provide the very best provision that we can. As part of this, all leaders carry out regular quality assurance and write action plans for improvement in their area. The Senior Leadership Team also write and monitor a whole school improvement plan. Our priorities for school improvement this year are:


  1. Improve teaching and learning, embedding our bespoke principles of: progressive, creative, reflective and communicative
  2. Establish a team of effective middle leaders whose work impacts positively on pupils’ quality of education
  3. Strengthen the implementation and impact of the wider academic curriculum
  4. Improve progress and outcomes across Reading, Writing and Maths in KS2


As part of our work with SNMAT, we are also visited four times per year for a 'Keeping in Touch (KIT)' Day by the Academy Improvement Team. This is a partnership day with senior leaders that aims to celebrate areas of development and identify points for improvement. Feedback from the day is then given directly to our governors through a 'Governor Keeping in Touch (GKIT) meeting. You can find out more about this process on the MAT website link below.
