Home Our journey School development

We use a five-step school improvement cycle to enable us to successfully apply evidence in our day-to-day work. The following steps have been used to establish the improvement themes and objectives outlined in our strategic school plan.

Step 1: Decide what you want to achieve

  • Identify school priorities using data and your professional judgement

Step 2: Identify possible solutions

  • Consider a range of high-quality evidence to inform your choices

Step 3: Giving it the best chance of success

  • Identify and apply the ingredients of effective implementation

Step 4: Evaluating impact

  • Determine the impact of change and identify potential improvements for the future

Step 5: Securing and spreading change

  • Mobilise the knowledge and use the findings to inform the work of the school to grow or stop the intervention
