St Joachim's School Annual Plan
We are a Christ-centred community empowering our learners through faith, respect and service.
Through our words and actions we will live our vision by;
At St Joachim's we believe that the essential focus of our school is the overall development of each child according to the needs and potential of the individual. We strive to provide a curriculum that will enable the child to grow in the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values. At St Joachim's we believe that learning and teaching is: Inclusive; Supportive; Collaborative; Respectful; and Purposeful and Meaningful.
Within St Joachim's the Jesus Story, encompassing the Josephite Charism, is visually evident through our values, culture and practices.
The school community shares a deep understanding of a contemporary, re-contextualised, Catholic world view.
There exists a consistent, school-wide approach in analysing and discussing collected data on literacy and numeracy to inform planning, target teaching and improve student outcomes.
The school works to maintain a learning environment that is safe, respectful, tolerant, inclusive and is driven by a deep belief that every student is capable of successful learning.
The school has a coherent, sequenced plan for curriculum delivery which embeds evidence-based teaching practices, assessment and reporting procedures.
The school is building teacher capacity by working to develop a culture of continuous professional improvement and encouraging staff to take an active leadership role beyond the classroom.
The school applies its resources (personnel, financial and physical) in a targeted manner to meet the learning and well-being needs of all staff and students through flexible structures and processes.
Parents and families are recognised as integral members of the school community and are partners in their children's education.
