Each year, we produce a development plan for the school. Lots of things guide us in deciding what to focus on, including pupils' needs, curriculum matters, Health & Safety advice, parental suggestions and concerns, including those raised through the annual survey of parents and improvements we identify that will enhance the learning experience of pupils and staff, improve facilities or increase site security.
Our current strategies for meeting the needs of pupils at Courthouse are, naturally, focused on our Ofsted Action Plan.
The Development Plan is closely linked to the school budget, which runs with the financial year (not the academic one). Of course, many of the issues we tackle have limited impact on our budget or are of such importance that we have to give them high priority. For the rest, we always seek to get best value for our money and focus on the impact they will have on pupils' learning.
If the thought of getting involved with the growth and improvement of our school interests you, then why not consider standing as a school governor when the opportunity arises? Vacancies are advertised across the school community whenever they occur and there is no better way of being involved in the strategic direction and shaping the future of Courthouse.
