2019-20 Priorities progress
Reviewing the progress of the 2019-20 school development plan remains statutory. Most schools have reviewed their priorities up to March 2020. This document offers sentences and possible content to report on progress since then. It can usually be reviewed at the school’s G6 site or an annex to the SDP 2019-20 document.
SDP 2020-21 - Blended learning priority
This is a priority that a school can adapt and use as part of a short-term school development plan until the autumn half term of 2020 or perhaps until Christmas. It is a plan to introduce and develop aspects of blended learning in a school. The content is derived from national blended learning guidance and the content of GwE workshops before the summer holidays. Consideration is given to aspects such as planning for school and home, giving constructive feedback and effective communication with parents. Although pupils will now be back in school in mid-September blended learning continues to be effective in promoting independent learning, digital skills and collaboration.
SDP 2020-21 - Blended learning priority logic model
This SDP priority is similar in content to the blended learning priority but this time set out in the form of a logic model. A school can adapt and use this model as the basis for developing blended learning throughout the school.
SDP 2020-21 - Curriculum for Wales addendum
SDP 2020-21 - Wellbeing priority
This is a priority that a school can adapt and use as part of a short-term school development plan until the end of 2020. It is a plan to introduce and develop aspects of wellbeing in a school following a return from a difficult period. The content is derived from national guidance as well as from the wellbeing aspects in the recent GwE dashboard.
SDP 2020-21 - Continuation of learning logic model
This is a priority that a school can adapt and adopt as a plan to prepare for various scenarios for teaching because of Covid. It’s in a form of a logic model and recognises the threats, the school’s possible inputs as well as consideration for actions to prepare for various scenarios such as pupils or staff isolating at home as well as closing classes and the whole school.
This is another, more traditional version of the SDP priority for planning the continuity of teaching. This version also includes a section to consider continuing teaching if the head teacher is absent.
