Aim & Purpose of the Training:

From 1st September, 2015 it became a legal requirement for all schools to have in place and publish a School Development Plan.

The School Development Plan is the school’s strategic plan for improvement. It sets out the actions a school will take to improve learner outcomes. A School Development Plan will be informed by the regular self-evaluation a school undertakes of its own performance and contextual data, and will contain the school’s improvement priorities together with the short and longer-term targets.

Estyn inspectors will use the School Development Plan, school’s self-evaluation report and other information to identify and formulate lines of enquiry during an inspection. This essential information will assist the inspection team to choose evidence to sample in order to verify the accuracy of the school’s judgements.

This session will outline to governors what the main aspects of a School Development Plan are, what areas should be included and the timescale involved.
