This Academy Improvement & Development Plan [AIDP] is being set in response to the conclusion of the prior development plan 2016-2021(extended due to Covid-19) which has been fully reviewed to establish progress made and also in response to the Ofsted inspection in March 2017 where the team judged:

We regularly monitor students’ progress, teaching, behaviour and attendance and use student and parent surveys to evaluate where we currently are. In addition, we use external quality mark providers to evaluate the quality of education and identify the extent to which our practices are innovative. All of these inform the areas for improvement and developments that will most benefit all learners in the years ahead.
