To deliver educational excellence through a safe, respectful and stimulating environment that inspires our students to unlock and fulfil their learning potential. Success is achieved through developing every child academically, socially, emotionally, creatively, and physically.
We believe that optimum learning occurs when:
- students are valued, supported, encouraged to take risks and to think creatively.
- students have a growth mindset and understand the impact of effort on progress and achievement.
- learning is culturally relevant and makes connections to student’s own life experiences.
- students co-operate, collaborate and interact purposefully with others to enhance their learning.
- the explicit teaching of higher order thinking processes and metacognitive strategies is embedded throughout the curriculum.
- teachers use a range of assessment data to design developmental learning sequences and lesson structures that cater for individual learning needs.
- explicit teaching practices, including learning intentions and success criteria, support students in knowing what to do and how to do it.
- learning goals offer students an appropriate level of challenge; and timely, targeted feedback empowers them to monitor and progress their learning.
- information and communication technologies transform the way students think and learn, and provide them with the required skills to be successful in today’s society.
- all stakeholders commit to open and respectful communication and collaboration, for the purpose of enhancing student wellbeing and learning.
Parents expect a high standard of teaching and learning from the experienced and talented staﬀ. Strong community relationships ensure everyone is well known, childrens’ needs are identiﬁed and parents are active participants in their child’s education within the school.
