School Development Plan


As a Maintained Nursery School we have our own School Development Plan (SDP) for 2021-2022. The SDP is a strategic plan for school improvement. It brings together, in a clear and concise way, our school priorities, our measures for raising standards, the resources dedicated to them and the key outcomes and targets intended to be achieved.

Our key priorities for 2021-2022 are:
