The Merredin College Business Plan sets the strategic direction for the College and what we want to achieve over the next three years (2019-2022). The Business Plan was developed with input from staff and School Board members.
As an Independent Public School, the role of the Merredin College Board will be to review the school’s progress towards the implementation of the strategies in the Business Plan by monitoring the achievement of milestones and targets. This gives the Merredin College Board a powerful and purposeful role in assisting staff to continually improve the quality of education for our students.
The Merredin College Annual Report is provided to parents and other members of the community and is intended to describe progress on school priorities, a sense of how students in the school are progressing and what is being done to maximise student achievement. Each year it is endorsed by the Merredin College Board.
Public School Review
All Western Australian public schools are reviewed by the Department of Education’s Public School Accountability directorate. A review gives assurance to the local community, the Minister for Education and Training and the Director General about the performance of public schools in delivering high quality education to students. The review acknowledges the achievements of the school and gives feedback to support the Principal and staff with their improvement planning.
Initially conducted on a three-year cycle, subsequent reviews are determined to occur on a one, three or five year timeframe.
The Principal provides the review team with a self-assessment of the school’s performance based on evidence from the school. Information to be validated by the review team is considered before and during the school visit. This forms the basis for the Public School Review report and determines when the next review will occur. The report is provided to the Principal and the regional Director of Education.
