Why have an Action Plan? It’s very important to organise your ideas into an action plan. Through the process of creating the plan you will be able to make sure that you include a realistic number of activities, and also work out how you will monitor and measure the progress of your actions. Having a SMART action plan will really help everyone to focus.

Key Criteria
- The Action Plan needs to clearly show proposed actions and how they will be undertaken
- It needs to be appropriate for the age and ability of the pupils (or there needs to be another version that is)
- It needs to be in a format that is understood by any other member of staff
- The Action Plan must be supported by the Head Teacher
