The guidance introduces SIPs to the principles that underpin the National Strategies' core offer and how this sits within an effective school improvement cycle of audit, target-setting, pupil tracking, planning, action and review. These core elements of school improvement, including an explicit focus on improving learning and teaching, support the school to enable all children to make expected or accelerated progress, so that as many children as possible are working at age-related expectations or above.
