The School Improvement Journey – developing a School Improvement Plan with impact (Secondary)

 10 Oct 2022  Webinar     

Webinar Description:

In two 30-minute webinars, we will outline the support Veema Education provides for the writing and development of School Improvement Plans. The webinars will focus on the contribution the School Improvement Plan can make to the development and clarity of a strong school vision and culture. Part 1 will outline some factors which could undermine the success of any element of the plan and look at ways to keep objectives relevant to each school’s unique context. Part 2 will aim to give some suggestions of how a School Improvement Plan can engage all staff in school development, be supported by educational research findings and be embedded in school practice so that it remains as effective as possible and has maximum impact on outcomes for pupils.

During the webinar you will:

  • Understand the purpose of a School Improvement Plan
  • Appreciate the potential pitfalls and possible ways to avoid them
  • Develop a climate for the School Improvement Plan to be integrated into practice and to have an ongoing positive impact on pupil outcomes
