Vision & Strategy 2026 places emphasis on School Strategic Plans as the drivers of delivery, with annual planning rounds to:
- Revise targets where the external environment has changed;
- Revise project plans or method of delivery or increase our efforts where City is off target;
- Achieve efficiency savings and allocate budgets as part of ‘business as usual’.
