School Improvement Plan

We are delighted to provide you with this strategic School Improvement Plan for 2019. This is an exciting time in the ongoing story of Mater Maria and this plan seeks to focus on our three main priority areas of mission, learning and pastoral care. The overarching focus of the School Improvement Plan is to continue the excellent improvement curve the College has travelled over recent years by creating Engaged, Positive, Independent and Connected (EPIC) learners.
