Christ Church Church Of England Primary School

School Development Plan

The Christ Church CE Primary School Development Plan is an annual plan written each academic year running from September to July.

The plan reflects our vision and values, aims and goals for the future.  It prioritises actions and developments following the school leadership's evaluation of the previous year's academic performance of pupils as well as the wider provision offered by the school.

Each plan is developed following discussions with our stakeholders including staff, pupils and governors.  Our School Development Plan, linked to the Ofsted Inspection Framework areas, sets out the key priorities for our school.
