We have 4 major aims for 2011 – 2013.
- Achieve registration for the school as an NGO (SIP1). Timescale: by end March 2011. Registration as a school: by end of 2013.
- Develop accommodation, resources and the curriculum in line with BRMS (SIP 2). Timescale: by end 2013.
- Provide appropriate advice and support for staff to develop the curriculum and their teaching skills to support pupils’ learning (SIP 3). Timescale: ongoing.
- Build on existing arrangements for partnership with parents (SIP4). Timescale: ongoing.
Actions to achieve each of these aims can be categorised within at least one of four overarching themes which support school improvement. The four themes are:
- continuous professional development (CPD);
- partnership with parents and School Management Committee (SMC);
- improving pupils’ learning experiences and raising achievement (ILRA);
- developing leadership for learning (LFL).
