Now, more than ever, is the time for you to take ownership of your school’s priorities, vision and values. Use this unique opportunity to reflect and rebuild, to make your school even better and stronger than before. Here's how.
Your governing board should approve the school improvement plan (SIP) every year. Understand the process for doing that, what to look out for and what questions to ask. The SIP is sometimes called a school development plan or strategic plan.
Academy trusts must set financial key performance indicators (KPIs), and report on them to trustees. It's also a good idea to set other KPIs as part of your improvement planning. Have a look at examples of KPIs you might use, and see approaches from other trusts.
