School planning and reporting

Planning and reporting help us meet the needs of our community, improve the quality of teaching and enhance outcomes for all of our students.

Strategic Improvement Plan

We have developed a Strategic Improvement Plan (SIP) in consultation with our community, identifying student outcomes and connected to a budget.

The School Excellence Framework (SEF) 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 SIP is a working document that details the steps our school will take to improve learning outcomes, and the achievement and growth of all students. To ensure continuous improvement, the SIP reflects where our school is at and how it will further improve learning, teaching and leading.  

It demonstrates our alignment and our commitment to excellence as part of public education in NSW to ensure a profound difference to the ongoing growth and development of our students.

School Plan 

Our new 4-year School Planning Cycle starts this year. We are currently formalising our three Strategic Directions that will inform the directions for school improvement over this next cycle. Consulting with our school community is important to ensure that we gather the full range of ideas, actions and hopes for our young people. The feedback slips for parents are shown in the three boxes under the headings of Actions and Best Hopes. This planning is being shared with the community in multiple forums: 

• The student body were given a presentation at assembly last week. Feedback slips have been submitted by many which show considered suggestions and highlight ways of teaching and learning that are valued by our students. 

• The P&C discussed the plan and provided feedback on suggested actions and their hopes for their children in the three Focus Areas. 

• Year 7 parents were shown the attached poster with a brief explanation at the 'Meet and Greet' sausage sizzle on Thursday evening with many completing feedback slips.

As schools continue to have restrictions on parents visiting in large numbers, InTouch is an effective vehicle to further share our planning and invite all parents and carers to have their voices heard. 

If you would like to provide feedback under any or all of the Focus Areas, please email yass.h-school@det.nsw.edu.au and use 'School Plan Feedback' in the subject field with the relevant Focus Area you are providing feedback on stated in the text. All data will be de-identified. Alternatively, an anonymous letter or note can be sent to school with your child. I encourage you to take this opportunity to be involved in determining the directions the school is taking as we continue to provide a quality education to all young people at Yass High School.
