Bicton Primary School promotes a respectful, nurturing, and supportive environment.

Our Culture

Our culture is made up of our traditions, routines, expectations and interactions that take place on a daily basis. It is driven by contemporary education practices and innovation to ensure that every child grows, learns, develops and enjoys coming to school each day. We strive to ensure that individuals feel valued, cared for and respected. We have a shared vision and high expectations which assist us in achieving our school mission. Continuing to build our positive school culture is a shared responsibility of all members of our school community. We consistently reflect on ways to promote the development of our young people and build on our good practices that already exist. As a reflective school our focus is to continually push forward so we are giving our students the best future possible.

At our school we value great teaching and learning which supports the whole child. We have a commitment to lifelong learning and our teachers model inquiry, curiosity and persistence to inspire our students to problem solve. Our teachers recognise and cater for students who come to school from a variety of backgrounds, beliefs, understandings and the different stages of personal, social and health development.

We have a physical environment that promotes the general health and well-being of the students and one where our students, staff and community take pride in our school. We focus on enhancing the self-esteem and wellbeing of the members of our school community. We include opportunities to foster a sense of identity, purpose, belonging, security and competence through our pastoral care programs and collaboration with the community.

The relationships that children witness in school can have a profound effect on their social development and learning. We focus on promoting genuine respect for diversity and inclusion so that our students challenge prejudice and learn how to live in an ever changing world.

Communication and dialogue build the basis for effective and supportive relationships. We value feedback from our school community and consistently want to do what is best for our students. Strong relationships with our community are important to us and ensure that our school strives for success.

At the heart of our school are our students and student centred learning approach for their future.
