Our Vision/Ethos

School Ethos

Within the spirit of excellence and mutual respect, North Morley Primary School is a safe and supportive environment with a clear focus on Values, Literacy and Numeracy. All students are encouraged to reach their full potential as confident, independent and responsible members of the community. 

School Vision

At North Morley Primary School, we believe learning is a life long journey. Our staff work with students and parents to create a holistic, safe environment for each child to feel valued and become socially responsible citizens. We strive to develop resilience and confidence in everyone. We encourage all learners and staff to become engaged, innovative and creative thinkers who set goals and strive to be challenged.  We believe in a culture of high expectations, developed through our SPORT philosophy:

S – SAFE     P – POSITIVE     O – ORGANISED   R – RESPECTFUL    T – TOLERANT

We believe this will equip students to take ownership of their own learning to become resourceful, successful citizens who aim high to reach their full potential

The School Vision Statement has been presented to the school community and reflects our Positive Behaviour Support program.
