The Seven Foundation Pillars of East Butler Primary School

 

  1. Our School harnesses a Strong Pastoral Care approach and a love of children. This is evident in all programs and playground and social events.  Pastoral Care is a great strength of our school.

  

  1. Co-operation and collaboration is a particular strength. Our team collaborate and co-operate with every aspect of school business, inclusive of community and students.  A true sense of focus is achieved by collaborative and co-operative groups.

  

  1. Whole School programs and Plans bind the teaching, learning and assessment program. Teachers enjoy consistency of approach to behaviour, programming and assessment, which is linked with co-operation and collaboration. This enriches outcomes.  Teachers enjoy making adjustments around these programs to cater for the different needs of students.

  

  1. Communication is a key aspect of all that we do. It is vital that all admin, staff, parents, students and agencies are informed and up-to-date of necessary information.  Feedback is a vital component of this communication.

  

  1. Building and developing effective networks is an important aspect of East Butler’s practice. We have a strong focus on working collaboratively with other schools to enhance and improve our practice.

  

  1. This Community is consistently involved in many areas of the school operations. The School Board is an integral part of decision making, P&C, Parent & Community, Volunteers and external services provide another avenue of support to the students and staff.

  

  1. The School has a strong Vision and has highly effective Leadership to maintain the vision and focus of the school. Distributed leadership is encouraged and developed through the development of a SMART (School Management and Resource Team) group.  The Leadership team promotes a strong professional learning community with links to the school business plan and a focus on developing highly effective teaching practice.
