Queen's Vision Plan

Coat of ArmsSpring 2017

The Queen’s School has Vision Priorities that provide a clear focus for actions and decision-making in the school.  This is our School Development Plan.  We're now coming to the end of our most recent two-year cycle, and thinking about our priorities for the next two years.  The process began in 2011, when the Governing Body asked children, parents, staff, governors and other stakeholders for their views.  At our first Vision Day that was attended by all staff, governors and parent representatives, ten long term Vision Priorities for the school were agreed.  These are:

Teaching and learning

To maximize every child’s learning by ensuring that each child is challenged and receives the support and inspiration they need to achieve.

The whole child

To provide a learning journey that empowers all children to be happy, well rounded, confident achievers.

Valuing staff

To have a staff team working to their full potential as inspired educators, filled with a passion for teaching.

Christian teaching and worship

A whole school demonstrating and proclaiming the joy of Christian faith on a visual, spiritual and educational level, with a focus on pupil participation

A warm and inclusive Christian school community

A whole school community that lives by our Christian values of compassion, love and respect; who actively care for and respect one another, embracing differences and celebrating successes.

Music

To be renowned locally and nationally as excellent in music practice and education.

Sport

For all children to be able to take part in and enjoy a wide range of sporting activities, both within and outside of the curriculum.

Learning environment

An environment conducive to learning that we can all be proud of

Foreign languages

Good consistent foreign language teaching and learning across the school

Wider community links and Y6 transfer

The school will be at the heart of the local community with links to the national and global communities, enriching the experience of our children

 

It was agreed that the Vision would be reviewed and refreshed every two years.  In 2013, a second Vision Day was held and stakeholders were once again asked for their input.  The ten priorities were reviewed and focus areas for the next two years agreed.    These priority areas formed the basis of the Queen’s School Vision Plan, with clear targets being set and then monitored by the Governing Body over the next two years.  A third Vision Day was held in Spring 2015, again with input from all key stakeholder groups.  The latest has just taken place in Spring 2017, incorporating the ideas of our children which were expressed in a focus group before the session.  The Vision Plan underpins decision-making, allocation of resources, school and staff objectives and Governing Body decision making.
