Ideas from Students and Parents on How to Further Improve the School

The Senior Leadership Team are beginning the process of writing the new Academy Improvement Plan (AIP). This plan will have the priorities, plans and actions that will be required between 2019 and 2021 to bring further school improvement. The plan we write drives all our meetings and our work over the next two years so it is incredibly important that we get this right for you.

As part of this process, we are determined to hear the ideas of as many key stakeholders as possible, especially those of students and their parents/carers. 

To help us with our planning, it would be great if you could share any ideas that you may have about how we can further improve our school. Please be as constructive as possible. There are plenty of forums where students and parents can raise concerns or praise the school but this request is more specific.

The questions we would like to ask are:

  1. What priorities should the school have for 2019-20 and 2020-21 and why?

  2. What actions should the Senior Leadership Team put into place to drive this improvement?

If you have any suggestions or ideas please let us know via email at: marking your message as either Student AIP Suggestion or Parent/Carer AIP Suggestion accordingly.

The deadline to allow us to properly consider your ideas is Friday 17th May 2019. We would be most grateful if you could find a little time to share your thoughts.

Thank you
