School Development Plan (SDP)
A school development plan (SDP) is a strategic
planning document covering the school’s activities over a period of
time. School Development Plans should be based on the needs of
individual schools and issues that may need addressing. For
example, a school may decide to focus on SLCN as part of their
school development plan based on data that may have raised issues
that could highlight SLCN in school, such as:
- SLCN as the highest area of need on the SEN
record if both primary and secondary areas of need are
- Increase in the number of pupils being
referred for Speech & Language therapy in KS 1;
- Pupils at School Action making less
relative progress than those at School Action Plus /Statement;
- Small number of pupils at Key Stage 1
and 2 who cause low-level behaviour problems and appear to have a
poor attitude to learning.
Alternatively, focusing on SLCN could be
incorporated within existing priorities in school such as raising
attainment or preventing disaffection. These decisions need
to be taken within the context of the cycle for school
