School planning and reporting

Planning and reporting help us meet the needs of our community, improve the quality of teaching and enhance outcomes for all of our students.

Strategic Improvement Plan

We have developed a Strategic Improvement Plan (SIP) in consultation with our community, identifying student outcomes and connected to a budget.

The School Excellence Framework (SEF) underpins our school planning and reporting approach. The framework provides a clear description of the key elements of high-quality practice across learning, teaching and leading.

The SIP is a working document that details the steps our school will take to improve learning outcomes, and the achievement and growth of all students. To ensure continuous improvement, the SIP reflects where our school is at and how it will further improve learning, teaching and leading.  

It demonstrates our alignment and our commitment to excellence as part of public education in NSW to ensure a profound difference to the ongoing growth and development of our students.

Anti-bullying plan

Hornsby Girls High School has a unique culture of positive connections between staff, parents, and students. Mutual respect and an environment focusing on positive education, study-life balance and growth mindset is key to maintaining this culture.

Our Anti-Bullying Plan is underpinned by our school values of respect, kindness, inclusivity, social responsibility, personal bests, intellectual curiosity, and resilience. These values have been agreed to by our school community and our responses to harassment and bullying reflect them.

Hornsby Girls High School is committed to a whole school approach to bullying which seeks to proactively prevent the behaviour and implement research-based responses in addressing bullying issues when they arise.

The Hornsby Girls High School Community rejects all forms of bullying.
