SUCCESS FOR ALL STUDENTS

Our school aims to raise academic standards across all curriculum areas by engaging every student in the learning process. We aim to support our students to become resilient and independent thinkers, able to confidently move through their schooling years and into adulthood. Using adaptive techniques, we will continue to provide a personalised teaching and support system for all students.

HIGH QUALITY TEACHING AND EFFECTIVE LEADERSHIPS

Forrestdale Primary School promotes a model of distributed leadership where staff are encouraged to build their capacity, take risks, try new ideas and become lead teachers in different areas as we believe that quality teaching is built upon effective leadership. Explicit teaching opportunities and the adoption of strategies based approaches will be integral to the curriculum and classroom practice. Staff are encouraged to grow through self-reflection, classroom observations and professional learning, modelling best practice and working collaboratively with a shared vision for student improvement.

SAFE & SUPPORTIVE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT

All students have the right to learn in a safe, supportive environment and be treated with respect. At Forrestdale Primary School we aim to support students through quality relationships, effective pastoral care and engaging learning environments, inclusive of the needs and backgrounds of all students.

Through strong and sustainable partnerships, Forrestdale Primary School is able to build quality best practice into every facet of the education program. Each partnership helps to improve the quality for teaching and learning, supporting our students to grow and develop lifelong learning skills. We foster and promote meaningful relationships to enhance partnerships within our school and local community. We acknowledge that wider community engagement and partnerships enrich our school.
