Action planning involves the identification of targets which, when reached, will collectively result in the realisation of a development priority. Targets should be specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timed (SMART) Work undertaken should be relevant and realistic, with its main focus on the learning of the child. To this end, development activities will constantly be evaluated to assess the difference they are making to pupil learning. Clarification of roles and responsibilities is crucial to planning success. So too is the identification of time limits by which short-term activities will be completed and the school can move on to the next priority.
