SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT & DEVELOPMENT PLAN
Hellesdon High School’s Improvement and Development Plan sets out the priorities for the year, based on previous inspections as well as detailed analysis and self-evaluation at Leadership, Department and Year Group levels.
The priority headings are listed in the SIDP Summary document (pdf). Each priority has a detailed action plan explaining how we are planning to improve and develop these areas.
A good school never stands still. From robust and honest self-evaluation at the end of the academic year 2017/18, we have identified key priorities below which underpin our three‐year strategic plan (pdf) through to 2020-21.
