School Philosophy

At Narre Warren North Primary School we believe that all children have the ability to learn.  By providing an environment that is stimulating, safe, happy and positive, we foster the learning potential of our children.  We will develop a high standard of literacy and numeracy, by encouraging inquiring minds and effective communication skills.  Our students will be encouraged and challenged to fulfil their academic potential, develop self discipline, self esteem and become independent learners.

Our school’s vision is to prepare young people to become active, engaged and responsible citizens of the local and global community.  It aims to prepare students to live in a dynamic 21st century in which creativity, cooperative work, connectedness to the world and adaptability are key features.

At Narre Warren North PS  we enact this vision by giving our students a grounding in the ‘4 Pillars of Learning’ needed to be successful in life:

Learning to Know – being literate and numerate and being able to expand knowledge to understand the world and act effectively in that world.

Learning to Do/Apply – being able to use ICT effectively and to build knowledge of digital literacies, being able to put into practice the necessary skills learned in all curriculum areas to everyday life and developing qualities such as communication, teambuilding and problem solving skills.

Learning to Live Together – celebrating and valuing diversity; showing mutual respect, empathy and concern for others and the world we live in through the development of social skills and restorative practices.

Learning to Be – living the important values in life including our school values to assist students in having the personal resources and intellectual tools needed to understand the world and behave as fair-minded, responsible human beings.

The school values respect, honesty, responsibility, resilience, enthusiasm, acceptance and co-operation. At Narre Warren North Primary School aims for all children to reach their full potential and take responsibility for their learning.

Narre Warren North Primary School is committed to child safety and establishing and maintaining child safe and child friendly environments where all children are valued and feel safe. We have zero tolerance of child abuse, and all allegations and safety concerns will be treated very seriously and consistently through our policies and procedures.

We support and respect all children, as well as our staff and volunteers. We are committed to the cultural safety of Aboriginal children, the cultural safety of children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, and to providing a safe environment for children with a disability and in out of home care.
