Our Vision and Values

‘working together for excellence’

 We believe the characteristics of an effective school are:

  • Being a Child Centered School;
  • Providing high quality teaching and learning;
  • Providing high quality, effective leadership;
  • Being a school strongly connected to its local community.

 Our purpose therefore is to be an excellent school. We continually strive for excellence in every area of school life. To achieve this aim we must always have the right school vision and values and these must be at the heart of all that we do. Our mission statement in Victoria Primary is:

 ‘To create a safe, happy learning community where together we inspire and equip our children so that they fulfil their potential, use their talents and follow their dreams now and always.’

As we strive to always be excellent, we aim to:

  • Value every child in our school family;
  • Make our learning environment as safe and as stimulating as possible;
  • Ensure we have a strong school vision linked to our mission;
  • Promote and celebrate excellence in learning at every opportunity;
  • Develop and celebrate excellence in teaching at every opportunity;
  • Ensure there is strong leadership throughout the school;
  • Equip our pupils with the skills, knowledge and character to enjoy a successful, peaceful and content life;
  • Promote a sense of stewardship in pupils for the community and environment in which they live;
  • Continually consult all of our school community about our provision;
  • Strategically plan to meet the needs of all our pupils using all resources available;
