Vision, Purpose and Values

Vision and Purpose

Our students are exceptional and keen to learn. They have confidence and show respect for self, others and the environment.

Our staff are reflective, responsive and innovative. With a focus on solutions they collaboratively create purposeful, relevant and individualised learning to help each child find their own voice.

Our school is inclusive, safe, engaging and equipped to extend each child’s achievements. We celebrate diversity and people feel welcomed to be a part of our school.

Our community is valued and actively contribute in supporting our children to build positive relationships, develop independence and to claim their place in the community.

Our purpose is the provision of meaningful and personalised learning promoting intellectual, physical, emotional, creative and social development for every child within a positive and caring environment.

Values

The Department of Education promotes ethical practice and appropriate standards of conduct and behaviour, and is committed to work and learning environments where all individuals are treated with respect and dignity. Therefore, the actions of all of our staff are guided by the Department’s values. These values reflect social responsibilities owed to students, parents, care-givers and other community members, and to each other. These values are given practical expression in the day-to-day operations of the school:

Learning:

We have a positive approach to learning and encourage it in others; we advance student learning based on our belief that all students have the capacity to learn.

Excellence:

We have high expectations of our students and ourselves. We set standards of excellence and strive to achieve them. The standards and expectations challenge all of us to give of our best.

Equity:

We recognise the differing circumstances and needs of our students and are dedicated to achieving the best possible outcomes for all. We strive to create workplaces and learning environments that are free of discrimination, abuse or exploitation.

Care:

We treat all individuals with care. Our relationships are based on trust, mutual respect and the acceptance of responsibility. We recognise the value of working in partnership with parents/carers and the wider community in providing a quality education for our students.
