Our Goals and Strategies 

1. Quality Teaching

 At Bayswater Primary School, we believe that through the implementation of high impact, quality teaching practises that all students achieve success.  Staff have engaged in professional learning, which supports evidence-based teaching practises.

Bayswater Primary School has applied a whole school, collaborative approach to teaching through a consistent, explicit instructional approach to Literacy and Numeracy.

Additionally, students have opportunities to learn in the specialist areas of Languages - Italian, Music, Performing Arts, Physical Education and Visual Arts.  Students also have Inquiry lessons that include topics in the area of Health, Humanities and Social Sciences, Science and Technologies. 

2. Learning Environment

 At Bayswater Primary School we pride ourselves on creating safe, orderly and engaging environments that promote creativity and opportunities to learn.  We reinforce positive behaviours through the four school expectations; Respect the Environment, Respect Learning, Respect Others and Respect Yourself which are well known to the students and are reinforced in the classroom and playground.  Staff follow a whole school Positive Behaviour Plan which keeps students focused and engaged and minimises low level disruptions in the classroom.

Student wellbeing is monitored using a Social and Emotional Wellbeing Survey and staff use Highway Heroes to support positive wellbeing.  

3. Relationships

We believe that building a strong, positive culture with the Bayswater Primary School community, enhances student success. 

We are grateful to have the support of the P&C to run the ‘Baysie Bites’ Canteen, actively fundraise and maintain the school garden & sustainability hub through an active committee.

We continue a positive relationship with the OSHC provider, Helping Hands, who were selected in a competitive process to continue operating at Bayswater PS.
