School Improvement

What is the School Development Plan (SDP) and the Self Evaluation Form (SEF)?


It is the role of the Governing Body and Senior Leaders at Easingwold Primary School to provide the strategic direction and drive for further school improvement.


To enable this to happen in a coherent and measured way, we collectively write a School Development Plan and a Self Evaluation Form each year. The SDP is written in light of the SEF and sets out the key areas of our work as well as the rationale for each objective. This supports the Governing Body to challenge the effectiveness of the work of the Headteacher and focuses our limited finances and energy towards areas that we believe will best impact on the educational outcomes of the children we serve. The SEF is a reflection document for school leaders to set out what has been achieved and what the impact has been. It is used by Governors in their monitoring to help them gather evidence and provide challenge.


Our most recent SDP and SEF are attached below. They are very much working documents which are reviewed regularly by Senior Leaders and Governing Body meetings. If you would like to discuss any aspect of these documents with the Headteacher or Governing Body, please get in touch


Whilst the bulk of our work is focused on year by year improvements, we must have a clear overview of the direction of the school in the coming years. Our 3 year strategic plan is at the end of the SDP and represents a number of goals we would like to work towards. 


Who's Responsible?


Each of our Governors is 'attached' to one aspect of the SEF. It is their role to use this document to support their monitoring and meet with Senior Leaders to support and challenge them over the impact of our work.
