About this course

How can you create a School Development Plan (SDP) that's smart, powerful and usable?

Through practical scenarios and relevant exercises, this one-day CPD course will introduce you to a range of models and approaches that will help you to ensure that your school's development plan is as effective as possible.

Suitable for headteachers, Deputy Headteachers, senior leaders and Governors, this course will explore every aspect of school development planning, giving you the confidence to plan for your school’s future with conviction.

You can bring your school's existing plan along with you, and our consultant will help you to consider its financial implications and how to monitor and evaluate it over time.

The objectives of this course include:

  • To understand the process of effective SDP and the importance of accurate self-review
  • To ensure your SDP makes a difference to outcomes for pupils and engages stake-holders purposefully
  • To consider how your SDP links to key priorities identified from data
  • To explore how to convert aims into actions – practical ideas for time-scales, manageable and purposeful monitoring and evaluation, measurable outcomes and achievable goals

Discover the importance of 360 degree analysis and feedback and leave feeling confident in the direction you want your school to head.
