Our strategic planning allows us to reflect on past performance, establish future directions, and decide our definition of success. This planning occurs in two parts:
Four Year Strategic Plan: The goals in this plan are based on initiatives from the Framework for Improved Student Outcomes (FISO)—a Department of Education and Training initiative that provides a common language and an enquiry-based approach to improvement across Victorian Government schools.
Annual Implementation Plan: Each year we develop an annual implementation plan (AIP). The AIP supports the operationalisation of the four-year School Strategic Plan, articulating how we school will implement, monitor and evaluate progress against the School Strategic Plan each year.
Our 2022-2025 Strategic Plan goals are as follows:
To maximise learning growth for all students in literacy and numeracy.
To improve student wellbeing and engagement through increased student agency.
2023 Annual Implementation Plan:
For 2023 the Department of Education (DE) updated the requirements for the AIP in order to refocus our efforts on a set of two common, core priorities after COVID19:
Learning – Support both those who need scaffolding and those who have thrived to continue to extend their learning, especially in numeracy
Build staff capacity in differentiation in Numeracy to identify and meet students’ individual learning needs.
Wellbeing – Effectively mobilise available resources to support students’ wellbeing and mental health, especially the most vulnerable
Strengthen the whole school approach towards social and emotional learning.
In addition to these core priorities from DE we will also be focussing on:
Reviewing current practices and drafting a whole-school pedagogical approach to Reading and Writing.
Strengthening our whole school approach to Goal Setting and Student Led Conferences.
