School Improvement Plan & Pupil Development Grant 

At Johnston Community Primary School, we believe our School Action Plan will allow all stakeholders to work closely in partnership with us and achieve our targets.


We strive to improve through employing rigorous self-assessment. As a result of detailed analysis of school data and ongoing continuous self-evaluation, we have five priorities this year. Our pupils have a ‘child friendly’ version, so that all of our stakeholders understand our shared goals.


We work hard to share these recommendations in a variety of ways. It is vital that everyone in our school community can understand them and implement them. This way, we strengthen our cohesion as a learning community. We share our vision through newsletters, assemblies, displays around our school, social media, noticeboards, parental meetings and Governing Body meetings etc.


In order to ensure the recommendations set out in our School Improvement Plan  are met, our ‘Performance Management’ targets will be directly linked during the academic year 2021/2022.

The five SIP targets are as follows:

Target 1 SIP - To develop the knowledge and understanding of all staff in facilitating the introduction of the new curriculum, ensuring that all pupils reach their full potential. 

Target 2 SIP - 2.  To raise standards further in teaching and learning across the schools with a clear focus on Language, Literacy and Communication, ensuring that a minority make more than expected progress.

Target 3 SIP – To develop excellent teaching in Mathematics further with a clear focus on the higher levels and under performance in certain year groups.

Target 4 SIP  - To continue to develop provision for Health and Wellbeing so that nearly all pupils develop positive attitudes to learning and ensure that the RSE curriculum is implemented and developed to engage pupils.

Target 5 SIP - To continue to focus on pedagogy when developing outdoor learning, independent learning and pupil voice.
