School Development Plan

School Development Plan for Academic Year 2023-24

The School Development Plan (SDP) is a strategic plan for improvement. It should bring together, in a clear and simple way, the school priorities, the main measures it will take to raise standards, the resources dedicated to these, and the key outcomes and targets it intends to achieve.

At St. Francis, we work collaboratively with Senior Leaders, Governors, teachers and pupils to determine what our key priorities are for the coming academic year.  We follow a clear process to determine what areas of the school need to be further developed as well as identifying areas of strength within the school.  By consulting all the key stakeholders within the school, the document is one that we all identify with and acts as a common goal that we are all striving to achieve.

The School Development Plan is not a fixed document rather it is one that is flexible and adapts based on the needs of the school.  The SDP is regularly reviewed by senior leaders and at termly Governor meetings and updates are provide to staff to ensure that we are all aware of any outstanding actions.
