School planning frequently asked questions

Schools develop a comprehensive three-year school plan and annual report in consultation with the school community, connected to a budget and student outcomes. The school plan clearly reflects the Department of Education strategic directions and Premier’s priorities, is underpinned by the School Excellence Framework and demonstrates the school’s commitment to excellence as part of NSW public education. The school plan includes strategic directions, demonstrating the alignment and commitment to excellence for all schools as part of NSW public education, and improvement measures, against which the impact of the strategic directions will be monitored and evaluated. Schools will publish their three-year school plan on the school website and should refine it annually based on evidence.
