Bishop Fox's 2019/20 School Improvement Plan - Bishop Fox's School
INTRODUCTION & PURPOSE

This plan is central in our efforts to deliver continuing improvement. We aim to build upon our strengths
and develop those areas where we consider that improvement is most needed.

The plan seeks to recognise that everything we do should impact in a positive way on the quality of
teaching and learning; and ultimately on the progress, achievement and outcomes for all of our students.

In particular this plan:

• Details the priorities for the coming year
• Details the one year plans within the context of our school ethos and values which themselves relate to
  the schools Self Evaluation.
• Provides a coherent framework for change based on the expectation of meeting challenging targets.
• Co-ordinates the deployment of staff and our physical and financial resources
• Bring together in one place all the relevant documentation in terms of School Improvement for 2019/20.

The plan is a working document which may be subject to change and amendment throughout the year.

As a working document it will be reviewed and evaluated by Governors’ Committees, the Senior
Leadership Team and Team Leaders. A minimum termly review is expected.

The whole school plan should be read in conjunction with the team plans which share the task of
illustrating the means by which school improvement will be delivered this year. Reference should also be
made to the school SEF together with those produced by every team in school.

The Performance Management process for individual staff links closely with and reflects the school and
team priorities as indeed it should.
