Our Strategic Plan

School Strategic Planning & School Improvement

The school sets strategic priorities to continue to improve outcomes for pupils and in response to statutory expectations and frameworks.

We always consider what is best for pupils at Alverstoke CE Junior School and apply that to our strategic planning. Governors, School Staff, Parents and Pupils are all involved in the evaluation and strategic planning process.

The headline priorities are as follows and the full strategic plan is a working document managed by the School Leadership Team and Governing Body. To view a more detailed overview of our plan please click here.

School Improvement Planning Process

The School Improvement planning process is determined by a number of factors:

  • Robust and effective School Self Evaluation
  • Internal Stakeholder Views 1.e. staff, governors, parents/carers, pupils
  • External Stakeholder views i.e. Local Authority (LA), Diocese, Ofsted



This evaluation and planning process provides the compass and the road map for school priorities and actions.


  • The Governing Body monitors the School Improvement Plan and the Headteacher reports on the SIP through the Headteacher’s Report to the Governing Body.
  • The Senior Leadership Team each have a lead area of responsibility and have detailed development plans related to these areas.
  • The school Self Evaluation document is regularly evaluated and updated by the Governors and Senior Leadership Team, reflecting progress against the SIP and other areas.
  • All school staff have a responsibility to know the school’s improvement priorities and their role in securing improvement.
