Markethill High School is about to embark on consultation for its new 3-year School Development Plan, which will outline the vision for school development until the year 2021. The School believes that the 2018-2021 timeframe will be one of the most important and exciting in its history.
In line with the above, the school has just published a consultation document which outlines the current context and emerging vision for school development in 5 key areas:
Standards and Outcomes
Quality of Curriculum
Planning, Learning, Teaching and Assessment
Pastoral Care and Safeguarding
The document can be found here. An abridged version of the emerging vision can be found in Appendix 1 of the document.
One-page ‘headline’ documents for each section can be found below:
Section 1. Standards and Outcomes
Section 2. Quality of Curriculum
Section 3. Planning Learning Teaching Assessment
Section 4. Leadership
Section 5. Pastoral Care and Safeguarding
As part of the consultation process, Markethill High School would like to initiate a working group comprising of school stakeholders, including parents, to review the emerging vision in detail and give feedback. This working group will most likely meet over 4-5 evenings between April and August 2018. It will involve presentations from key staff on each section, opportunities for questioning and a forum to give the school constructive feedback on its development. The School would very much welcome parental engagement through this panel.
Should you wish to participate in this working group, please fill out the form in the letter which has been sent home with your child or download and print, and return to the General Office by Monday 26th March 2018.
