School Development Plan
We review our school development plan every three years in detail. Our school development plan is also available in hard copy format on request.
Our overarching theme for our 2016-19 School Development Plan is to promote and encourage high quality learning experiences for our pupils. Our aim is to encourage our pupils to SOAR and FLY. So let’s BRING IT ON!
INVESTIGATIVE AND PROBLEM-SOLVING ACTIVITIES
We seek to give our pupils good opportunities to be involved in investigative and problem solving activities – activities that really encourage them to think, take account of different factors and work with others. This will help them to acquire necessary skills to develop as an individual and as a contributor to society.
SEEING THE PURPOSE IN LEARNING
Children learn best when they see the purpose of their learning and when they can relate it to something in everyday life; hence we try to provide learning experiences that are relevant and enjoyable.
ACCESS TO MEDIA-RICH SKILLS
We are growing up in a more culturally diverse society and so our teaching needs to reflect this. We access media-rich resources which our children use daily.
The Moat, with its ‘caring learning achieving’ ethos, seeks to provide a supportive environment, where children are encouraged to excel and surmount any barriers they may have to learning.
We encourage our staff to engage regularly in self-reflection and equally our pupils. It helps them to become more empowered to achieve their potential and make informed and responsible decisions in their lives.
