Blackminster Middle School Raising Attainment Plan 2011 – 2012 Generated: 1st August 2011 To Raise Standards Further We have 4 Priorities

Priority 1. Learning and Teaching meets need

2. Leadership and Management

3. Partnerships

Summary Low attaining students achieve or exceed target grades (PH) High attaining students, especially in maths, meet or exceed expectations (all other students achieve or exceed targets) (PH) Assessment for Learning (formative assessment), including Learning Reviews, is used consistently well across all subjects and teachers, emulating best practice, and leads to improved student attainment and progress – 100% compliance (LM / CN) 4. Half-termly teacher summative assessment, including the use of APP, is used to monitor progress, inform lesson planning, Progress Reviews and Reports – 100% compliance (LM) 5. Literacy, oracy, numeracy, ICT, PLTS, SEAL, SMSC and Enterprise Skills are developed through all subjects and mapped across the curriculum. Students to self-assess – mapping completed and linked to schemes of work (LM / CN) 6. Lessons ACTIVELY involve students in learning through: majority of questioning being open ended; higher order thinking skills; group work and oracy (LM/CN) 7. Independent learning becomes an integral part of all lessons and prompt constructive feedback given to students – 100% compliance (LM) 8. Behaviour for Learning (BfL) used consistently by all staff so that the number of detentions and exclusions from 2010-2011 is reduced (ND) 9. Students cultural awareness is developed through a clear focus on Community Cohesion (ND) 10. Students more active in their learning in PSHEE and Citizenship and have an increased number of opportunities to use ‘Active Citizenship’ (ND) 1.

Development of the Management Information System (SIMS) – ALL staff have access to and use SIMS – 100% compliance (PN) 3. Performance Management is used to improve Achievement, Learning and Teaching – targets set include a learning and teaching target related to RAP and when monitored show improvements in student progress and achievement (PH) 4. Further develop the use of data (FFT and RAISEONLINE) to track student and group progress and to intervene when students ‘fall behind’ – ALL underachieving students identified and supported through early intervention (PN) 5. Ensure ALL statutory policies are updated and verified by Governors – policy review cycle completed and in action (PH) 6. Department Reviews include Governors. Information from Governors informs review document but does not influence judgements (PH) 7. Curriculum, including ‘Creative Curriculum’, reviewed to identify areas of strength / development, need and to review staffing including SEN provision including TAs (LM) 8. Ensure consistent use of data through improved MASC meetings (PN) 9. Leadership at all levels (HoS/HoH/SENCo/SLT) focused on: improving learning and teaching; consistent use of data to inform and plan; raising standards (PH) 10. Improved staff induction to ensure staff have: knowledge of all policies; necessary IT hardware and software including log-ins; awareness of BMS safeguarding and Child Protection policies and procedures; data and necessary information for the students they are to teach (LM/AP) 11. The School explores the conversion to Academy (Govs / PH) 1. Further develop partnerships with First / High Schools and other stakeholders to raise standards and to improve learning and teaching and data exchange (PH/PN/LM) 2. Parent Voice established and leads to parents / carers involvement in decision making – 90% of parents state satisfaction with process (LM) 3. Further develop partnerships with LA and other agencies to support student learning, progress and well-being (CN) 4. Greater use made of facilities by the community to generate funding (AP) 1. 2. 3.

4. Administration, grounds maintenance

5. 6. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.

Clear descriptions of staff roles and responsibilities available for parents, governors and other stakeholders (PH) Collaboration with Pebworth First School supports and drives improvements in achievement and standards and Cluster liaison (PH/IM) Ensure students with disabilities can access all parts of the school (AP) Review admin support so that Workforce Reform is fulfilled (AP) Develop the Management Information System (SIMS) so that all staff have access to and use ‘Take Register’, ‘Profiles’ and ‘Assessment Manager’ to register students and to record progress and attainment (PN) Website, including BMS VLE focuses on learning and teaching and is regularly updated (PN) Prospectus and other school information updated (AP) Ensure Value for Money (VfM) through spending review and increasing income through lettings (AP) Complete the Schools Financial Value Standard (AP) Ensure Safeguarding procedures and risk assessments are up to date and meet statutory requirements including membership of ISA (Independent Safeguarding Authority), or alternative (ND)

The Four Principal judgements of how we are performing will be based on: 1. The achievement of students 2. The quality of learning and teaching 3. The quality of Leadership and Management at all levels 4. The behaviour and safety of students We will also consider how well we:  Promote the students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and  The extent to which we meet the needs of ALL students including those who have disabilities and those who have special educational needs In order to ensure we focus on the suggestions in the last Ofsted report there will be MER of how well we promote:  the students’ well-being  Community Cohesion
