Our Strategic Objectives (2021-2024):

We utilise select strategic objectives to help us focus on the delivery of our vision for Pembury Primary
School, leaning heavily on our mission and values to do so. Setting strategic objectives helps us to deliver
success in key areas which will have the most positive impact on our school. Based on the three-year
horizon of this plan, we will target five core priorities, which are set out below.

1) We will encourage and enable established and emergent leaders to take more individual responsibility for delivering positive outcomes, including:

  • Ensuring accountability is clear, consistent and making a difference
  • Developing reflective practitioners who are learning focused
  • Identifying opportunities for leadership roles/ developing leaders within our school community
  • Fostering young leaders, empowering more pupils to play a greater role in how our school develops

  • Deliver an exciting and challenging creative curriculum with a key focus on learning outcomes
  • Improve the quality & consistency of teaching standards, with outstanding practitioners driving this
  • Raise standards in writing, maths and language development, using a data-driven approach to support pupils in closing the learning gap
  • Ensuring all pupils are making appropriate progress, this means challenging the most able appropriately and support strong progress for the more disadvantaged or those with additional learning needs
