School Improvement Plan & Strategic Directions

School Improvement Plan

St Mary’s seeks to maintain and build on its reputation as a leading co-educational college of the Diocese. Every three years the College community enters a renewal period of approximately six months where it explores its purpose, mission and needs. Such an exploration takes the form of quality surveys, interviews, focus groups, which gather relevant data about all aspects of the College.

The goals which address the needs of the College are constructed from the accumulated data or are existing practices and projects that need to be enlivened in the college. These goals form the new three to five year Strategic Directions.

The Strategic Directions inform the formation of the School Annual Improvement Plan (SAIP), which is subsequently reviewed and reported to the community at the end of the year. This SAIP report may necessitate changes to the Strategic Directions, which is an ever-changing instrument that is continuously moulded to the growth of the College.

The College Board plays an integral role in the yearly renewal process, ensuring the Strategic Directions is relevant. A focus for the College and Board is to engage in continuous renewal processes where issues are addressed as they arise.

The requirements of the NSSAB Compliance Audit should be integral to the school renewal process. The Catholic Education Service’s Strategic Directions will also influence the three year and annual plans of the College.
