Learning Philosophy

At Brighton Beach Primary School we aim to offer a balanced and comprehensive learning program, building on a strong foundation of literacy and numeracy, as well as a broad range of specialist learning areas.

Within an enthusiastic, caring, friendly, child-centred learning environment our school strives to ensure that all children will

 

·        be happy in themselves and enjoy coming to school

·        become confident, successful, self-motivated, independent life-long learners 

·        have high, but realistic expectations of themselves and others

·        be literate, numerate and confident to take their place in a complex technological world

·        be responsible learners empowered to make decisions that positively affect their lives and society

·        work co-operatively with their peers and other members of the school community

·        be tolerant, respectful and appreciative of people and their differences

 

Our teaching and learning philosophy encourages children to:

 

·        take responsibility for their behaviours and a pride in their achievements

·        develop an awareness of the learning strategies which enable them to become independent, lifelong learners

·        develop effective decision making, problem solving and critical thinking skills

·        be socially connected and develop acceptable social skills

·        learn to operate effectively as a part of a team

·        undertake leadership roles through a variety of whole-school and classroom responsibilities and opportunities

·        strive to perform to the best of their abilities
