What to put in your school’s plans

What to put in your school’s plans

The objectives for boards in the Education and Training Act 2020 include ensuring “the school is inclusive of, and caters for, students with differing needs”.

Your strategic and annual plans are central to delivering equitable and excellent outcomes for all learners.

In your plans, show:

  • what your board wants to achieve for students with differing needs
  • how you intend to achieve the outcomes for these students, for example, your teaching strategies, and how you are going to use your resourcing
  • what success will look like for students
  • how you will evaluate and assess your progress towards meeting your goals or targets and report this in your annual report.
