Vision 2015 Group March 2010

Themes
We will pursue our mission through four inter-connected themes. These are:

Standards and Achievement Care Provision Partnership and Community
For each we have a vision and related goals and they are detailed on the following pages.

Standards and Achievement
The Vision Every child succeeds in their learning. No individual or group is left behind and achievement is celebrated across the curriculum. Goals
All our pupils are extended through inspired and challenging teaching ; the needs of our gifted and talented children are met through a combination of school based and external sources; The overwhelming majority of children behave well. They care about themselves, each other and their environment. They are respectful towards adults and in turn are always treated with respect; From KS1 to KS2 all children achieve at least 2 levels of progress in reading, writing and mathematics; All children identified with reading and writing difficulties which expose them to potential illiteracy are additionally supported and in possession of a Literacy Plan , which is reviewed and updated throughout their time at CVPS; Under-attainment, as measured by the school s internal systems reduces on a year -on-year basis. No group of pupils under -attains (taking into account statistical significance) All teachers deliver lessons which are consistently good or better and the proportion of outstanding lessons increases on a year -on-year basis. Teachers are well supported by Teaching Assistants, who are valued by adults and children for their contribution towards learning . Increase the proportion of lessons judged as outstanding on a year -on year basis The school s indoor and outdoor environment reflects our high standards and children s achievements.

Care
The Vision All children thrive and barriers to learning are removed. Effective and inclusive partnership working between our three facilities ensures early identification of need and suitable provision Goals
Vulnerable children and families are identified. They are offered school/centre based support, or where appropriate signposted towards other agencies, which enhance the school s care and support for individuals in need; Good communication between facilities ensures that there is continuity of care; Children are fit and healthy. Opportunities are created within both the curriculum and extracurricular activities for planned exercise.

These, as well as other identifi ed children, are supported with homework tasks.

There are a range of ways in which individuals can talk to adults and discuss their concerns. These are always dealt with; Safeguarding procedures are exceptional; Induction and transition strategies ensure all children feel comfortable moving through school phases.

Provision

Vision 2015 Fund
At the working group meeting on Monday the array of ideas put forward at our February vision meeting was considered. The following areas were identified as possible uses for our vision fund (£30K): 1. The conversion of the Key Stage O ne Hall into a Performance Studio and Gym. This supports our work towards goals in Standards and Achievements, Care and Provision. 2. The development of cooking as a feature of the curriculum including parental involvement and a new facility within the DT room. This support s our work towards goals in all four themes. 3. A fund to support disadvantaged pupils to be used, for example, for the purchase of ICT equipment, items needed for participation in extra -curricular clubs and funding for specific events. This supports our work towards goals in Standards and Achievement and Care. 4. Providing after school clubs/activities for parents and children together , for example the use of ICT. This supports our work towards goals in Standards and Achievement and Partnership and Community. 5. Giving all children in year 6 the opportunity to undertake cycling proficiency training and possibly more general cycle training fo r younger pupils. Also to provide a scooter park to reduce the proportion of families driving to s chool. This supports our work towards goals in Care and Provision. 6. To support initiatives to encourage and increase parental involvement in the school, such as a coffee bar and encouraging parents to coming in to read with children instead of waiting in their cars or in the playground at the end of the day. This supports our work towards goals in Standards and Achievement and Partnership and Community.
