School Development Plan 2022-23

Every year we set ourselves targets to develop our school for the coming year. We work closely with children, staff and governors to share ideas with a view to improvement. This year our targets are:

Implement and embed a whole school approach to emotional and mental well-being
Developing key skills across the curriculum including literacy, numeracy and digital competence
Developing our assessment procedures so children know how to improve their work
Develop our own Tre Uchaf Curriculum including new guidance on Relationships and Sexual Education (RSE) and Religion, Values and Ethics ( RVE).
