At Pascoe Vale Primary School, our vision is to provide quality, stimulating programs in a safe, collaborative and supportive environment. Students are encouraged to become 21st Century thinkers, problem solvers and reflective learners who are flexible in their approach to their education. Our programs aim to develop behaviours that encourage a healthy, balanced lifestyle, lifelong learning and responsible citizenship in a multi-cultural society.
Pascoe Vale Primary School’s values are Respect, Responsibility, Inclusion and Resilience.
We respect ourselves, each other and our school environment and understand that our attitudes and behaviours have an impact on the people around us. Everyone has the right to learn and the right to be safe. We are respectful when we are kind, polite, honest and thoughtful. We show respect when we treat ourselves, others and the environment with the highest care.
We show responsibility by taking ownership of our learning, actions and belongings. Students understand they have ability to act independently and make their own decisions. Students reflect on their actions to become independent individuals, with positive self-talk and by being up standers.
Inclusion creates a sense of belonging. We are accepting of others and their views and treat everyone fairly, regardless of gender, age, race, religion or disability. We treat each other fairly with care and compassion. We understand people may have different views or feelings and we are supportive, accepting and caring towards them, working together no matter our differences.
Resilience and the ability to bounce back from challenges and adversity improves learning and wellbeing. We encourage flexibility in thinking and attitudes, a positive growth mindset and a can do attitude.
