We are committed to the development of whole-school effective teaching and learning practices to best support the children in our care. At Pascoe Vale Primary School we realise that starting school is an important event in the lives of children and their families. We have high expectations about your child becoming literate and numerate. We know we share these expectations with parents and other family members. These aims are best achieved when home and school share their individual goals for the children and work together to achieve them. The development of this partnership is important for children to learn and to be happy at school. At Pascoe Vale Primary School, our vision is to provide quality, stimulating programs in a safe and supportive environment. Students are encouraged to become problem solvers, reflective thinkers and flexible individuals. Our programs aim to develop behaviour that encourages a healthy lifestyle, lifelong learning and responsible citizenship.
