Strategic Plan Summary

Posted in For Parents


Laddsworth Primary has many years of excellent legacy. This strategy document sets out the foundations of the process to accelerate that legacy of excellence into the 21st century and beyond.

planThe strategic plan is reduced to 9 streams. Each stream should ultimately be reduced to an overall strategic objective.

Just as sunlight is split into streams of colour by a prism of glass, the overall direction and strategy of Laddsworth Primary is underpinned by strategic streams of energy and effort. There are traditionally 7 colours referred to in the physics of light, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet.


To accommodate 9 streams in our strategy we will refer to Red1 and Red2 as well as Violet 1 and Violet 2.

Stream 1 – Red 1


Strategic Objective

Develop and clearly articulate a plan for the long term independence and increased autonomy of Laddsworth.

Stream 2 – Red 2


Strategic Objective

Create a governing body (SGB) approach within the confines of current rules that ensures continuity and sustainability of this plan, ie the plan needs to survive longer than the parents tenures who implement it.

Stream 3 – Orange


Proposed Strategic Objective

To excel academically in the modern era. To provide world class Education.
This should include but not be limited to advancement with teaching methods and tools across academic, cultural, IT and other relevant disciplines by employing latest methods and modern technology, tools and systems.

Stream 4 – Yellow


Strategic Objective

To uplift and provide wider exposure for the ethos, purpose, empathy, passion, the motto “Aim High” for the Values: Loyalty, Honest, Self-Discipline, Sincerity, Courage and Respect

Stream 5 – Green


Strategic Objective

To be an environmentally and socially aware and responsible member of the Hilton community through sustainability and environmentally friendly programs, initiatives, systems and processes.

Stream 6 – Blue

Stream 7 – Indigo


Proposed Strategic Objective

To Grow Laddsworth Primary in quality and effectiveness without exceeding the physical and agreed to limits for capacity of facilities, classrooms and staff.

Stream 8 – Violet 1

To become a self-sufficient example of financial sustainability through thorough financial methods, 99% fee collection, sponsorship for indigent or needy individuals and a strong Financial Trust
