School Excellence Framework and Planning
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.
The Annual Report is provided to the school community as an account of the school’s operations and achievements throughout the year. It is the result of rigorous school self-assessment practices undertaken collaboratively with staff, parent/caregivers and student leaders.
It provides a detailed account of the progress the school has made to provide high quality educational opportunities for each and every child set out in the school plan. It outlines the findings from self-assessment that reflect on the impact of key school strategies for improved learning and the benefit to all students from the expenditure of resources including equity funding.
The Annual Report describes the school’s high quality practices across the three domains of the School Excellence Framework of learning, Teaching and Leading.
In constructing the 2018-2020 school plan, Normanhurst Boys High School has consulted with all participants in our educational community.
- All staff members have contributed in the development of the school vision, strategic directions and improvement measures of the plan from the initial stage to the final.
- Students have led and had a voice in defining the direction and the directions they would like the school to take.
- Parents have been involved in identifying, refining and endorsing specific areas of the plan. A school planning forum was held where representatives from all stakeholders were involved in refining and endorsing the contents of the 5P planning for each strategic direction.
