School Development Priorities 2016-2018

The School Development Plan enables the school’s vision to be shared and understood by the whole school community. Our aim is to work and learn together as a community in order to improve and be the best that we can be. The School Development Plan should give everyone an understanding of where the school is going and what actions will be taken to ensure we get there.
