Martin Primary School

School Development

At Martin Primary School we are always looking for ways in which we can develop and improve as we want the best for our children, families and staff. 


Every year we carry out a self-evaluation process which includes an analysis of school data, such as end of EYFS data, end of Key Stage 1 and end of Key Stage 2 SATs (Standardised Assessment Tests) results, to help us decide what our priorities are for the coming academic year.  We like to include all staff and governors in considering the strengths and areas for development. Information from parents/carers and pupils also feeds into our evaluation.


We then make a School Improvement Plan (SIP) based on the key areas of:

Leadership and Management

  • Teaching and Learning
  • Personal Development, behaviour and welfare
  • Outcomes for Pupils
  • Early Years Foundation Stage
  • Overall Effectiveness


Once we know our key objectives, we then decide the actions that are required to meet our objectives, who will do them, the resources that will be needed, when they will be done and how they will be monitored and evaluated.


The school’s Senior Leadership Team (SLT) monitors the School Improvement Plan (SIP) and our Self-Evaluation Form (SEF) every half term. The Governing Body also monitors the plans at each committee meeting.
