The School Improvement Framework
Brisbane Catholic Education's mission to
Teach, Challenge and Transform summons Brisbane Catholic Education schools to strive for continuous improvement across all areas of school life to ensure that each student becomes the person God has created them to be.
The following principles guide Brisbane Catholic Education's School Improvement Framework:
The School Improvement Framework aims to support schools on their individual journey to growth and progression. The framework combines a continuous school improvement cycle with integrated planning, reporting and review processes.
The Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) National School Improvement Tool (NSIT) is at the heart of the School Improvement Framework.
The School Improvement Framework is designed to build capability — the planning, reporting and review processes grow schools' understanding and application of evidence-based best practices, to maximise educational outcomes and grow a culture of improvement.
The BCE review and improvement cycle is as follows:
The External School Review, which takes place in Year 5 of the school improvement process, provides an opportunity for a panel of educators, external to the school, to affirm and commend areas of good practice, along with recommending areas in which the school can grow and develop. An External Review Report to the Executive Director of Catholic Education, is an outcome of an external school review.
