School Improvement Plan

School improvement is woven through all that we do at Cockington. Each year, we identify areas to develop in order to further improve the education and support that we provide to our pupils and the wider community. Please see this year’s key priorities below. 

To further benefit from the collaboration and the sharing of good practice we have the Trust-wide Strategic Education Teams. The teams are comprised of leaders from all three schools whose role is to plan and facilitate professional development, cross-school monitoring and moderation and joint action research.
