At Safety Primary School (PS) we provide a safe, caring and inclusive learning environment that encourages all to fulfil their potential and contribute positively to society. Data analysis allows us to case manage students ensuring differentiation in order to meet their diverse needs.
Visible Learning is a whole school priority, as we work collectively to develop assessment-capable learners. It is desirable for ICT/Digital Technologies to be integrated through the curriculum in classrooms.
Our focus at Saftey Bay PS is whats best for the whole child (social, emotional and academic), which is best served by whole school plans and processes.
At Safety Bay our core values of Respect, Responsibility, Resilience, Reflection and Relationships (5R’s); and our commitment to “Putting Children First” underpin everything that we do. Social and emotional learning programs and interventions are key to our focus on developing the ‘whole child’.
There is a strong partnership that exists between the school and the community. Our P&C and School Board provide outstanding support to our school program and parents are strongly encouraged to become actively involved in their children's education.
