School Review 2019

The Department of Education (DET) conducts reviews of schools every 4-5 years. This rigorous process is conducted by a DET appointed reviewer who consults with all stake holders to help determine the school’s needs and how to meet these over the following 4 year period. The result of this is the development of the School Strategic Plan (SSP).

This page of our website will be dedicated to the sharing of information about our school which I hope will help inform the consultation process to take place over Term 4 of 2018 and leading into our Review in Term 1 of 2019. Through this page you will be able to access a range of documents including:

  • Reports related to the school’s academic achievement
  • Reports detailing the results of surveys of key stake holders including students, parents and teachers
  • School policy documents which are also looked at as part of the Review.

If you have any questions about this process please feel free to contact me via the School Office.

Following our Parent Forum the following was settled on as the final draft of our Vision Statement

RPS Vision Statement (Final Draft)

Richmond Primary School fosters a community of socially responsible, respectful and resilient life-long learners. We develop curious, creative and collaborative students who  contribute positively to the community now and in the future as global citizens.

The group also brainstormed their answers to the following question: What skills, attitudes and understandings do we want our students to have by the end of primary school? and the following came through as the agreed ’big’ ideas in relation to our students’ learning:

–   Social skills                    –  Global thinking            –  Managing adversity       –  Possibilities to become anything

Other comments and feedback from the evening may be found in the document below:
