Subject Leader Action Plans
Subject Leadership at Our Lady & St. Oswald's Catholic Primary School
Our subject leaders provide leadership and direction for the subject and ensure that it is managed and organised to meet the aims and objectives of the school and the subject.
While the headteacher and governors carry overall responsibility for school improvement, the subject leaders have responsibility for securing high standards of teaching and learning in their subject as well as playing a major role in the development of school policy and practice in line with assessment and quality of teaching.
Throughout their work, subject leaders ensure that practices improve the quality of the education provided, meet the needs and aspirations of all pupils, and raise standards of achievement in school. Subject leaders play a key role in supporting, guiding and motivating teachers and other adults of the subject. They evaluate the effectiveness of teaching and learning, the subject curriculum and progress towards targets for pupils and staff, to inform future priorities and targets for the subject. Subject leaders identify needs in their own subject and recognise that these must be considered in relation to the overall needs of the school.
It is important that subject leaders have an understanding of how their subject contributes to school priorities and to the overall education and achievement of all pupils.
All subject leaders create and update their subject leader action plans termly. All of which can be accessed below.
