School Development Priorities

SDP 2023-24


Codifying Culture

  • UAB approach to anti-bullying across the school

  • Zones of Regulation to provide emotional education and regulation strategies

  • ‘When The Adults Change’ approach to relationship and behaviour management

Why: to provide a shared language and consistent approach for children from all staff throughout the day and to help children develop their emotional maturity.



  • ensuring the school curriculum is inclusive and diverse to represent our community

  • Children should be able to see themselves in their learning

  • Children should be exposed to diverse cultures, wealth, abilities, interests and communities

  • Curriculum emphasis on RE

Why: the school community has diversified significantly in recent years, child survey for ABA scored low on sense of belonging.


English Writing

  • assessment of writing: greater use of Insight across the teaching sequence; visible success criteria to start units and for final independent writing

  • writing across the curriculum using a recently taught English unit (Eg. writing a newspaper about the eruption of Vesuvius having completed a newspaper T4W sequence in English earlier that term)

  • Use of RE stimulus for writing (link to Diversity target)

  • Whole school spelling system - what can we do to develop spelling

Why: more able attainment in writing is lower than reading and maths. In-house data suggests spelling gaps are more prevalent. Writing outside of English books can lack grammatical levels.



  • Improving the sustainability of the school: lighting, solar panels reducing the carbon footprint of the school and making energy cost savings to the budget

  • Further enrichment of pupil experience: gardening, Eco Council, recycling

  • Creating global citizens that take pride in their environment through curriculum links and initiatives

Why: to further strengthen the work begun in 2022-23



Strategic Thinking

The school leadership team are always planning ahead and developing the improvements to the school in a careful and structured way. We have launched 'Leading Teaching & Learning' as a way to share some snippets of our thinking and processes with parents.
