School Development & Key Priorities

Newfield has a comprehensive School Development Plan (SDP) which is available in its entirety on request.

School Development Planning Process – Towards Vision

Our School Development Plan (SDP) presents a 3 year strategic overview to support on-going improvement and our drive towards outstanding provision. For each academic year we then identify our key improvement priorities.

From these priorities our School Improvement action plan is drawn up to ensure we address these areas within our cycle of self- evaluation. This process is fluid and supported by the termly self – evaluation governor committees.

Both the School Development and Improvement Plan relate directly to the 4 key areas of focus in the revised OFSTED framework (2019)

Each year the SDP is evaluated and aspects carried over where needed. New targets are then set and others discontinued.

Equality Duty

Newfield School complies with the general and specific duties of the Equality Act (2010). In accordance with the duty we publish information that demonstrates that we have due regard to the need to;

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination
  • Advance equality of opportunity
  • Foster good relations

These specific duties have been considered in relation to all our policies and procedures in school. Our objectives will be reported on and published as part of the Governance public documents available for inspection under the Freedom of Information Regulations and Data Protection duties and in the school newsletter to parents.

Our Equality Objectives are set, reviewed and published annually in our School Development Plan.
