Green Point Christian College School Improvement Plan 2020

_________

We have adopted a school improvement process rather than a traditional strategic plan, in order to remain open and flexible to on-going change and to build a mindset of continuous improvement into our organisational culture. This also builds upon our newly adopted core purpose statements including our graduate profile for students. Improvement is in the direction of how best we can progress our core purpose which is an on-going focus for each successive intake of students. The key elements are drawn from school improvement literature including the ACER work (eg National School Improvement Tool) of the last few years. Our four key priorities will be: a. b. c. d.
