School Improvement Plan

How are we making Kilburn Grange School even better?

School Improvement Plan Summary 2019-2020

Vision statement:

  • To put the children at the heart of everything we do in order for them to learn, enjoy, and succeed.
  • To create a school that inspires and engages children’s hearts and minds and prepares them for life in their communities.

Leadership and Management

  • Develop new and existing leaders at all levels who lead by example and who are clear about their impact on the progress and outcomes of children.
  • Develop a full Local Advisory Board with a varied skills set that supports the school through effective community engagement and overseeing of educational provision.
  • Ensure safeguarding continues to be robust and all staff understand what needs to be reported and the procedures for reporting. All children are safe from radicalisation and extremist views and the Designated Safeguarding Lead team work together to ensure this.
