A DYNAMIC LEARNING COMMUNITY
Subiaco Primary School is a dynamic learning community where members work collaboratively through our shared vision to assist children to realise their potential. Staff work together with parents and community towards attaining common goals for our students; developing responsible and resilient learners, promoting a culture that develops leadership across all levels of staff and students, implementing structures to support continuous improvement and celebrating our diversity.
A PROFESSIONAL AND POSITIVE ENVIRONMENT
Subiaco Primary School staff have developed a professional and positive environment in which the teaching and learning process can thrive. There is a real sense of optimism and well being in our school community generated by a shared vision, guided by affirmative leadership. We aim to develop a harmonious, respectful, courteous and friendly relationship between staff, students and parents. Visitors recognise the positive relationships and a spirit of community.
A CENTRE OF EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE
To progress our school as a centre of educational excellence, staff demonstrate their professionalism by openly collaborating, sharing individual expertise and best practice initiatives. Original thinking is highly valued and encouraged while new and innovative ideas are sought through appropriate professional learning. Knowledge will be communicated openly as all stakeholders work towards a shared vision with a clear understanding of priorities and needs.
GOOD CITIZENS – STRONG VALUES
At Subiaco Primary School we aspire to develop qualities that contribute to the growth of resilient students, staff and caregivers, who are encouraged to actively demonstrate good citizenship and responsibility in their daily lives. Explicit teaching of values – including respect, assertiveness, positivity, kindness, empathy and fairness are inherent in all learning areas.
REGULAR FEEDBACK, REFLECTIVE IMPROVEMENT PLANNING
Commitment to ongoing growth is reflected in the manner in which timely, valid and empathetic feedback is given and received. This contributes to the overall wellbeing and progress of stakeholders. Policies and programs are regularly updated and prioritised to cater for individual and group support. Needs are identified through analysis of academic performance data from State and National assessments, detailed record keeping and professional judgements by teaching staff.
A COMMITMENT TO EVERY STUDENT
A cycle of whole school reflection and goal setting ensures teaching and learning programs reflect the current best practice aimed at raising the standards of achievement. Committed staff undertake to cater for talented and gifted students, students at educational risk and students with English as an Additional Language/Dialect. Where appropriate a range of programs including school based extension and support are offered. Assessment, data collection and teaching to the point of need allow students the best possible chance to demonstrate measurable improvement.
Shared leadership is valued and implemented at all levels in our school with opportunities for staff and students to take on and share a variety of roles. Training and mentoring is implicit and student development is particularly nurtured and encouraged. The ethos of ‘give it a go’ is a community priority.
Our school values diversity and celebrates opportunities to acknowledge the differences of others. Programmed cultural activities promote the celebration of our Indigenous culture along with the rich culture of more recent Australians. Subiaco Primary School respects “it is okay to be different”. Our inclusive environment encourages ongoing opportunity for us to be OUR BEST.
