School Improvement Alignment to LEAD Principles

The school has a School Improvement Plan in place, based on the Leading for Learning Framework developed by Neil Dempster. It covers the areas of Leadership, Professional Development, Conditions for Learning, Curriculum & Teaching, and Parent & Community Support.

In each of these areas, staff at St Gerard’s Primary School used data to establish some goals that we collectively agreed to pursue. The strategic direction for Catholic Education in Western Australia encapsulated in the acronym LEAD has been weaved into our School Improvement Plan to remind staff of the collective responsibility we have at the system level.

By engaging in school improvement in each of the five focus areas, we are also ensuring that the principles of Learning, Engagement, Accountability & Discipleship are at the forefront of our planning and improvement practices.
