Shared Vision


Condingup Primary School – Shared Vision

Resilience

Condingup Primary School is a happy, safe school. It has an energetic, professional staff that works collaboratively with the community to make a difference for the students and their futures. Our school has a holistic approach to education which focuses not only on academic achievement, but also emotional, social and behavioural development of the individual students. We work together to instil and build in our students the ability to be resilient and to learn how to recover from difficulties and challenges. Students have the courage to make choices and to learn and understand the rewards and consequences associated with those choices.

Decision making

Students are at the heart of what we do. Our School Council is deeply engaged in school improvement and decision making. We listen to the ideas of all school and community members equally, ensuring everyone feels valued and included in decisions. We base our wise decisions on facts, using data and evidence where appropriate to aid the decision making process. Decisions and changes are discussed and communicated in a professional and constructive way with staff and the wider school community. School planning and processes support the staff to create a positive learning environment within the school to be a place of fairness and contentment.  

Communication

We value open, honest and transparent communication to develop relationships based on trust, fairness and integrity. There is opportunity for honest constructive feedback and people feel their opinions and ideas are valued. Our school supports new staff, parents and students with a positive and thorough induction procedure. Our messages are consistent from the very beginning and creates awareness of the expectations in our school.

Leadership

All members of our school community demonstrate effective leadership and this is based on being respectful, calm and consistent in our approach. Being a positive role model for the school, treating all individuals fairly, while ensuring all are aware of their roles and responsibilities. Leadership is grounded in honesty, integrity and openness, developing strong positive relationships based on mutual trust.

Values

Shared values are important in our school as they develop a strong sense of community. Everyone’s opinions and ideas are listened to so that all school members feel valued, respected and safe. Our values include fairness, kindness, consistency, honesty, openness and being trustworthy. There is a sense of belonging, safety and family as everyone looks after each other.

Community

We have a community. We have an engaged and passionate Parent and Citizen’s Association that actively supports the school. We utilise the vast variety of skills and expertise of the community to better the educational opportunities of students. Parents are dedicated and involved in ensuring the progress and learning of their children.

Student-centred

Teachers are enthusiastic and motivated in creating positive learning experiences for students. Classrooms are safe places, students are given the opportunity to learn and practice new skills in a variety of situations. We provide the support and structure students need to become independent, life-long learners. Students show an ownership in their learning and have a sense of pride in their work, others work, and in the classroom and school environment. The classroom is a place of trust, fairness, contentment and positivity. Children’s interests and passions are recognised and encouraged through student centred programmes that encompass supported, structured and independent learning.
