At Kingston Heath Primary School, we pride ourselves in being a friendly, inclusive school where families and visitors feel welcome from the moment they enter our community. This begins with the Foundation Transition from kindergarten and transcends beyond the formal primary school years. We find many students continue to take an active part in our school community well after their Year 6 graduation.
Our school values are the PYP Learner Profiles of Caring, Open-Minded, Reflective, Balanced, Courageous, Knowledgeable, Principled, Inquirer, Thinker and Communicator. Each class creates an Essential Agreement which fosters student agency in establishing classroom norms and expectations. The school provides a nurturing setting where all members feel a sense of belonging, are valued, respected and free from discrimination and harassment. We have a longstanding commitment to providing every young person with the right to complete their education in a safe and supportive learning environment.
Our school promotes student agency by empowering students to take responsibility for their actions through positive behaviour management strategies and Restorative Practices. The most profound learning experiences occur when there is a healthy relationship between the teacher, student and parents. Restorative Practices assists teachers, students and parents to build, maintain and restore relationships and help build capacity to enable students to self-regulate behaviour, build empathy and contribute to the development of the whole child.
