Headfield CE Junior School

School Development Plan

A school development plan is written each year and makes clear how the Headfield team intend to drive the school forward in our journey to becoming an outstanding school. We are a strong, ambitious team who are striving to give the children of Savile Town and Thornhill Lees the best rounded education we possibly can, rich in experience and routed in literacy skills. We constantly evaluate the effectiveness of our school, celebrate the successes and identify what we need to focus on to ensure our children are given firm foundations to continue their next step in education when they leave us. 

For 2021/2022 our main priority is that our recovery curriculum supports children’s full return to school life & closes the gaps in learning following the challenges to education caused by Covid19. The four focus areas of our school development plan for 2021/2022 are:

  • Raise standards and attainment in writing
  • Raise standards and attainment in reading
  • Raise standards and attainment for pupils with special educational needs and disabilities
  • Raise standards and attainment in Maths by embedding the mastery approach to learning
