Martin Primary School

School development

At Martin Primary School we are always looking for ways in which we can develop and improve our learning provision to achieve the best possible outcomes 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 develop a School Improvement Plan (SIP) based on the key areas of:

  • Quality of teaching
  • Behaviour and attitudes
  • Personal development
  • Early Years Foundation Stage
  • Leadership and Management


Once we have identified our key objectives, we plan the actions that are required, who will carry them out, the resources that will be needed, when they need to be done and how their effectiveness will be monitored and evaluated.


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