Brisbane Catholic Education (BCE) has a commitment to continual review and renewal and its processes provide assurance to the broader Church, the local school community of students, parents and care givers, and the broader community including governments regarding the identity and quality of our schools.
BCE prepares a Strategic Plan for five (5) year periods, the current being for 2017 - 2020.
Schools undertake their own Strategic Renewal Processes and from the BCE Strategic Plan formulate their own Broad Strategic Goals for a five (5) year period. Below is the link to our current document. The 2017 - 2020 is currently in development.
2013 - 2017 Broad Strategic Directions
Using information gathered from Internal School Review processes, BCE and school initiatives or identified needs within the school, a yearly Goals/Action Plan is formulated. A report on achievements in relation to these Goals/Actions is completed the following year.
Schools also engage in internal Cyclical Review over a five (5) year period.
