strategic plan 2019-21

We know we have a great school, but we also know we need to keep evolving to make it even better!

We have a wonderful new building and that has taken a lot of focus and hard work over the last few years. But we need a plan to ensure it continues to deliver on the high expectations of our students, whanau and staff.

Here is our new Ohope Beach School Strategic Plan 2019-21.

This is an Interim Plan while the Government are making changes to the schools planning cycle. The Board of Trustees would love to hear what you think about this new plan (see ways to contact us below). We have developed it using the feedback from the survey undertaken in 2018 (see below). We haven't managed to capture every comment within this plan (we wanted to keep it to 1 page to keep it interesting), but as you'll see, some of our actions are to respond in more detail to the valuable feedback we've received from the community.

How did we get to this point?

You gave us your feedback

In 2018 we asked you, the school community, what your priorities were for our school. Your views are important to us, by working together we can ensure we can make OBS the best school for our children.

To help contribute towards making sure Ōhope Beach School meets the needs of all our children we needed to hear your views. You answered 3 questions for us and we used your feedback to inform our direction in our Strategic Plan.

We asked you:


What do you love about our school?


What are your good ideas to make OBS even better?


What do you think needs to change?

You answered the survey:

How does the survey fit into the Strategic Review?

Talk (Oct/Nov 18)

We wanted to hear from as many people as possible to help us understand what the Ōhope Beach School community want from their school

Sort (Jan/Mar 19)

The Board of Trustees then sorted through all your comments, analysed the feedback and used that information to review our strategic direction

Report (May 2019)

We have now brought an updated Strategic Plan back to you to make sure that we have managed to capture your views  accurately. This Plan will continue to evolve each year
