Student Engagement and Wellbeing
At Aitken Creek Primary School, our students will be given every opportunity to achieve personal success in their learning and become responsible and productive citizens.
An environment that is caring, safe and supportive will be provided so that each student achieves their full potential. Parents, students and staff are strongly encouraged to work together in partnership to ensure our students succeed.
The core beliefs that we base our work on are:
● Through effort everyone can succeed and personal achievements are celebrated.
● Active engagement as well as positive work habits and attitudes are essential to learning.
● Social skills are fundamental in the way we interact with each other.
The values which underpin the actions for the whole school community are:
Respect: Showing care and concern for ourselves, other people, property and our environment. Developing a sense of pride, self-esteem and personal identity.
Teamwork: Achieving success by working cooperatively with others to achieve common and personal goals.
Achievement: Setting goals, showing persistence and taking pride in our achievements.
Responsibility: Showing commitment to our learning by being accountable for our actions.
