In 2021 the school undertook a detailed external validation and a situational analysis involving consultation with students, staff, parents, school P & C and the wider community to ascertain current strengths and areas for future improvement.

These findings have been included in the school vision and the school's strategic directions for the next four years. These include: growth & attainment, specifically reading and numeracy, wellbeing and attendance and using data to inform practice.
