The school is committed to working in partnership with parents and the wider community. The school has an active P&C and School Council.
The expertise and experience of staff are utilised across the school to maximise student outcomes. The staff is committed to delivering an inclusive and balanced curriculum, which addresses the diverse needs of our students. There is a Physical Education Teacher, LOTE, Art and Music Specialist Teachers. We have a strong commitment to play based pedagogy across the early years (K/PP/1), and providing an environment which responds to the interests of children.
A comprehensive pastoral care system, supported by a Chaplain, is embedded in the operation of the school. Social and emotional wellbeing is a key priority with our STRIVE values crucial to creating the conditions for children to feel safe, valued and a vital part of the learning process.
