Officer Primary School is committed to providing a safe, supportive and inclusive environment for all students, staff and members of our community. Our school recognises the importance of the partnership between our school and parents and carers to support student learning, engagement and wellbeing. We share a commitment to, and a responsibility for, creating an inclusive and safe school environment for our students.
At Officer Primary School we promote the philosophy that all children can learn and become effective learners. As a learning community, made up of parents, staff and students, we hold high expectations of self and others.
Our purpose is to equip the learning environment with the best human and physical resources so that our students are supported to:
· Achieve their full educational and personal potential
· Strive for excellence
· Participate in innovative teaching and learning experiences
· Develop independence and resilience
· Become effective and productive members of a global society
At Officer Primary School we strongly believe that the entire School Community shares responsibility for the learning and development, health, safety, and wellbeing of our students. We place great importance on building authentic relationships with parents and caregivers, to promote high levels of involvement in the development and learning of their children.
Excellence- Striving for personal best as an individual and a a member of a team
Respect- We value the rights and contributions of staff, students and community members
Kindness- We are compassionate and show concern for others
Honesty- Being truthful to myself and others
Resilience- Bouncing back when things get tough by being a positive problem solver
These values have been developed following consultation with our school community. Our ongoing challenge is to embody and model these values in our day to day work. This challenge applies equally across the school staff, students and parents. The values will guide our behviours, practices, communication and decision making.
