Planning and reporting help us meet the needs of our community, improve the quality of teaching and enhance outcomes for all of our students.
We have developed a 3-year plan in consultation with our community, connected to a budget and student outcomes.
The School Excellence Framework underpins our school planning and reporting approach. The framework provides a clear description of the key elements of high-quality practice across learning, teaching and leading.
The school plan is highly strategic, focusing on 3 key areas for improvement we have determined in consultation with our community. It demonstrates our alignment and commitment to excellence as part of public education in NSW to ensure a profound difference to the ongoing growth and development of our school.
The Westmead PS School Strategic Plan 2015-2017 has been endorsed by the Director of Public Schools, Hills Network. The plan includes our newly developed shared vision and strategic directions which are a result of the planning process undertaken during 2014 and early 2015.
We have collaborated with all key stakeholders (Stage 3 students, teaching and administrative staff and the parent community) to develop our school plan. This has included surveys, staff meetings, planning teams, talking with parents and students, liaising with the Community Hub Coordinator and input from parents at P&C meetings. We have also used the DEC strategic directions, current curriculum documents and the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APST) to frame planning.
