Digital Strategy 2023-2028

This is a work in progress and over this year as we review our SSE practices in the school we will amend this document to include our School Improvement Focus documents below.

Our School Improvement Plan for 2023/2024 was developed following a review of our 2022/2023 school year.

This review involved ongoing reviews throughout the year, in conjunction with surveys of parents, students and teachers and through meetings of our leaderships teams, student council, parents council meetings, BOM meetings, the One Good School Team and the Teaching, Learning and Assessment teams in the school and staff meetings.

School Improvement Plan for 2022/2023

The school’s Vision statement “Together We Will Achieve” reflects the hopes for our school and students where each of us wishes to achieve to the best of our ability, while acknowledging that this can ultimately be better achieved through partnership.

The schools Mission statement reflects how we will achieve this vision by Caring, Developing, Praising and Believing in our students and by empowering them to also take personal responsibility for their growth and development.
