School Development Plan

Our School Development Plan

Our School Development Plan (SDP) contains a wealth of information assessing how well we are performing as a school, what our long term strategic priorities are and details of activities that we are undertaking to help improve provision throughout the academic year. It was written by staff, children, parents and Governors, supported by Diocesan and LA colleagues, and is a working document. At the heart of the SDP is the vision that EVERY CHILD MATTERS and a determination to be the very best we can be; ‘Better Never Stops’. Underpinning all of this are is our Mission; ‘Listen, Love, Learn’.

The SDP is a critical document for the continued success of OLQOH and belongs to us all. We welcome feedback, comments and thoughts on the current SDP, together with suggestions for actions you would like included in the 2023/24 SDP.
