Evaluative thinking in the school planning process

NSW Public Schools engage in a four-year planning cycle, governed by the School Excellence policy.

The disciplines of evaluative thinking are woven throughout the school planning process. These include:

  • starting with self-assessment and consultation
  • planning with the end in mind
  • selecting evidence-based strategies
  • regular monitoring and evaluation
  • the plan as a living document.
