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.
Our aim in 2019-20 was to embed last year’s improvements to ensure a lasting and sustainable future for our Federation. We focussed 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.
In March 2020 progress on our development plan was suspended due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. In September 2020, with a full reopening of both our schools, we have refocused on our SDP priorities first developed in September 2019. For 2020 we have made some adaptations to our objectives to meet the challenges and restrictions caused by Covid-19 and added a 4th objective. In 2020-21 we will therefore 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.
In addition, we will explore and develop effective remote teaching strategies and techniques to ensure our blended learning offer effectively mirrors our vision and our philosophy for learning.
Develop effective leaders at all levels of our organisation in order to inspire and lead outstanding teaching across the federation. This will include our SLT, Curriculum leaders and Governance. A commitment to a distributed leadership approach and professional development for all staff and governors is at the core of strengthening all teaching and learning
