At The Gateway we are always striving to provide the best education that we possibly can. We know that by working with all the school community we can achieve our key priorities for the coming years.
As with all schools, we have been impacted by the pandemic and our school development plan for 2021 – 2023 reflects the return to normal as we work together to mitigate the long-term impact of COVID 19.
Below is a summary of our current priorities:
Key Priority 1: QUALITY OF EDUCATION
1.1 To maintain the high standards of achievement for all children.
1.2 To refine strategies for SEN pupils to ensure they make as much progress as all pupils nationally.
1.3 To strengthen deeper learning in the foundation subjects by continuing to make links between themes and topics.
1.4 Children to use problem solving and reasoning to strengthen their understanding in maths.
Key Priority 2: PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT
2.1 To strengthen the well-being of staff, pupils and parents.
Key Priority 3: LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT
3.1 To ensure new middle leaders are rigorously monitoring teaching and learning in the foundation subjects.
