Original consultation

We would like your feedback on draft regulations governing school development plans (SDPs).

Consultation description

The purpose of this consultation is to seek views on the introduction of Regulations governing SDPs and specifically the following changes:

  • to make it a statutory requirement for all schools to have a current SDP and to place a duty on the governing body of all maintained schools including Pupil Referral Units and maintained nurseries to periodically review the SDP
  • to set a minimum requirement for the content of the SDP and the production and review process
  • to streamline the planning process by requiring the SDP to incorporate all strategic improvement planning documents
  • to stipulate arrangements for publication of and access to the SDP.

In practice schools may use alternative titles such as school improvement plan or school action plan. In this consultation ‘school development plan’ or ‘SDP’ is the term used to refer to the school’s primary strategic planning tool.
