Governors Development Plan

Governor Action Plan 2017

Every Year when the annual school Development plan is considered these questions form the backbone for the Governors reflections

How do we make adults long to be children again through the quality and range of curriculum/activities?
How do we develop children’s desire to ‘Make a difference’ as they grow up? “Turning the Tide” people!- Sensing the difference!
How do we engage children’s natural sense of justice so that they engage fully in being a global citizen?
How do we develop our children’s abilities – Develop lifelong learning skills and attributes?
How do we develop our children’s abilities to remember ie memory skills/learning strategy? (Nessy App, Meta cognition, Distilling, mind map)
How do we develop children’s skills to question, make links, be resourceful?
How do we enable our children to be media savy?
How do we make the time to reflect on and assess the significance of what is happening in the world (circle time/PSHE/SMSC, value links)?
