The School Success Model is clear that everyone in Education is responsible for improving student outcomes – school leaders, teachers, support staff and the system more broadly.
Our schools are responsible for improving student outcomes and have signed up for ambitious student performance targets. The School Success Model outlines support for schools to achieve their targets, as well as the responsibilities of everyone across our system.
Just as there are targets for schools to achieve, there will be ambitious targets for the system to achieve to reduce administrative burden and ensure it provides evidence-based support, guidance and direction to lift school and student performance.
For example, student attendance is one area where there is room for improvement at both the school and system levels. Attendance is fundamental to ensuring students develop important social connections and maximise learning opportunities.
The department has set a target to increase the proportion of our students attending school more than 90 percent of the time.
