 Leyburn Primary School Development Plan 2017-20

                                                                    ‘Inspiring us to be the best we can be’  



Leyburn Primary School  values being at the heart of the local community. We believe in working and learning together to develop all aspects of the child, giving them the skills to be confident young people, able to play an active role as adults in modern society. Children are trusted and given the freedom to learn within the boundaries of what is expected from them. We aim to provide the best academic, social, moral, spiritual and cultural education possible and we expect all involved with the school to contribute to this.


Following on from our successful school development plan 2014-17, our next three years are outlined as follows:


School development plan 2017-20


We aim to ensure that:

  • All staff will do whatever they can to make sure that every child is given every chance to do their best.
  • Our curriculum is relevant, provides lots of opportunities and celebrates difference.
  • We try to do the best that we can to contribute to our school, our community, our country and our world.
  • We help each other to be as healthy as we can: physically, mentally and emotionally.


We have:  

  • a strong team, centred around our membership of YCAT;
  • good building and grounds;  
  • a good reputation within the community;  
  • a supportive and committed Governing body;  
  • an enthusiastic and committed staff ; 
  • quality resources ;
  • a commitment to sport & sporting events ; 
  • high expectations of staff  is reflected in children’s behaviour.  


All actions are driven by an unwavering commitment to improving outcomes for all children.  


School development planning is a continuous process. Consequently, this School Development Plan Summary is an organic document, outlining goals and current plans. As it is not rigid, it will alter as evaluation and reviews occur at times during the year.  Our whole learning community will continue to be involved in this process through consultation, helping to build capacity for future improvement.  

This plan sets out how we aim to not only to maintain performance, but also to raise overall school standards, individual pupil achievement and to place staff development at the heart of school improvement.  

Our previous 3 year development plan (2014-17) focussed on each area and secured improvement in all aspects.
