Norman Gate Vision
At Norman Gate School the entire school community places the needs of all pupils at the forefront of its work; only through honest and accurate self-evaluation can this take place. Effective school self-evaluation will enable us to accurately tackle areas of underperformance by building our capacity to maximise strengths and address weaknesses across all areas of the school.
At Norman Gate School, self-evaluation is underpinned by an uncompromising drive to improve and sustain outcomes for all pupils. All leaders lead by example and base their actions on a deep and accurate understanding of pedagogy and subsequent outcomes. All self-evaluation activities seek to overcome the barriers to learning for all groups of pupils in the context of the school community, Andover’s local community and the wider national context.
Rigorous school self-evaluation and improvement planning enables all staff to contribute effectively to sustaining a relentless focus on improving teaching and learning, for dispositions, skills, knowledge and understanding.
