The purpose of the plan is to identify how we can further improve and develop the work of Rode Methodist First School and Norton St Philip CofE First School, how we will manage change, and how we can make best use of resources and new opportunities available to us.
At Rode and Norton St Philip Federation our Christian Vision is to ignite a creative spark; illuminating new possibilities, hidden potential and big dreams, enabling each and
every child to embark on a unique adventure towards life in all its fullness.
2018-19 was another very successful year in which we embedded our ‘best of both worlds’ Federation model with mainly single-year group classes across Norton St Philip
and Rode. The quality of teaching and learning soared, our results were above National Expectations and Curriculum opportunities, including our On the Crest of a Wave
Carnival were highly creative and inspirational for all. In addition, both schools were graded as “Excellent” in our SIAMS Inspection in June 2019.
Our aim in 2019-20 is to embed last year’s improvements to ensure a lasting and sustainable future for our Federation. We will focus on:
developing our Leaders at all levels of our Federation,
ensuring all our pupils experience a creative, inclusive and inspirational curriculum and that
our buildings, organisation and environment enhance learning and enable the delivery of our Vision.
