PSPC is an IPS school
What is an Independent Public School?
Like all state schools, IPS are an integral part of the state schooling system. They partner with their school community to create and pursue a shared strategic direction that focuses on student well- being and improved student outcomes. IPS are required to operate in line with the same legislation, industrial instruments, directives, whole of government policy and national agreements as all other state schools.
IPS are high potential schools, selected on the basis of their ability to clearly demonstrate the ‘distance travelled’ in each year of their operation. While this affords them some operational flexibility to test new ways of working, it comes with an expectation that they will be fully accountable to their community and the department and share innovative practice that lifts the performance of their own school and supports positive change across the entire state schooling system.
Independent public schools operate in line with the IPS Policy Framework. The Policy Framework sets out the key features of the IPS initiative in Queensland and the system supports that enable it to deliver to its full potential.
Independent Public Schools are a catalyst for positive system-wide change that leads to improved services and learning outcomes for all state school students.
