The Local Academy Committee typically meets once a month to make strategic decisions on behalf of the school. These are made in light of a series of documents that every school uses.

  • The Self Evaluation and Imporvement Plan (SEIP) evaluates the strength of each part of the operation of the school and then plans on where to focus the management resources to improve the school in future. This meshes closely the school evaluation and then planned improvement specific actions the school intends to take and explains how we will measure our progress

  • The School Dashboard contains all the Assessment information on the school. It is a very detailed document with the raw information cut and sliced to provide evidence of the achievement and progress of each child in the previous year and how the school is doing in comparison to other schools in the country. This helps us to plan more effectively for the children who are still in the school.
