Saltus Announces New Strategic Plan: ‘The Key’

May 10, 2018

Saltus today announced the launch of a new strategic plan they are calling, “The Key.”

The plan highlights four main areas, or pillars, that reflect the priorities of the school over the next five years: “Community, Programme, Stability, and Image.”

The Key also identifies a new vision statement that will guide the school’s activities: “Inspiring students to lead us to a more just, fair and sustainable world.”

According to Saltus Head, Deryn Lavell, “The Key is the result of months of consultation, research and brainstorming. Our entire community participated in this process and I think that is well-reflected in the strength of the plan.”

“The Key speaks to the need for schools to embrace 21st century learning and the many complex ways in which a programme must be designed to meet that challenge. It also pursues an aspirational vision that connects students with the broader world around them, and inspires them to be engaged, ethical leaders.

“Schools everywhere are facing serious challenges today, said Ms. Lavell. “There is enormous pressure on educators to provide a learning environment that will prepare students for the future in unprecedented ways.

“It’s no longer enough to have the teacher at the front telling students to memorise something on a blackboard – those days are long gone. We must rise to that challenge by building a culture that is curious, creative and innovative. That, in essence, is what The Key is designed to achieve.”

The school, which was founded in 1888, enjoyed the full support of the Board of Trustees who worked closely with Saltus leadership to develop the plan.

According to Board Chair, Gil Tucker, “It was a thorough, thoughtful and vitally important exercise. We all believe the school is in excellent hands and is prepared for great achievements in the future.”
