School Development Priorities

At St Mary’s Infants School these are our current development priorities which we are working on throughout the 2021 -2022 academic year. 

  • Implement our new curriculum across all subjects with fidelity.
  • Improve the attainment of reading and phonics through implementing the Read Write Inc programme.
  • Strengthen subject leadership skills so that the intent and implementation of the curriculum are closely monitored.
  • Develop further the provision for pupils with special educational needs so that they can flourish.
  • Develop pastoral provision to enable all learners to flourish.


We also have a rigorous staff development programme and work closely with advisors from Hertfordshire for Learning (HfL) around our English, Maths, SEND and Assessment provision. 

In addition we have a Hertfordshire Improvement Partner who quality assures the senior leadership team.
