Planning and reporting help us meet the needs of our community, improve the quality of teaching and enhance outcomes for all of our students.

The Strategic Improvement Plan (SIP)

The Strategic Improvement Plan (SIP):

  • is underpinned by the School Excellence Framework (SEF) , SEF Self-assessments and the external validation process
  • clearly identifies the expected improvement in learning, teaching and leading aligned to specific strategies, initiatives, resources and professional learning
  • includes strategic directions and the improvement measures, including references to the school's agreed system-negotiated targets, against which your school's impact will be monitored and evaluated
  • clearly reflects the department’s strategic plan and Premier’s priorities
  • demonstrates your school’s commitment to excellence and equity as part of NSW public education
  • is clearly linked to the school budget, reflecting the resources that will be used to achieve the planned improvements
  • is underpinned by high impact teacher professional learning to build the capabilities of teachers and school leaders.

The School Excellence Policy  provides direction for schools on school planning, ongoing self-assessment, annual reporting and external validation.
