School Philosophy

Our shared vision is to provide a secure and caring environment where children, teachers and parents can work harmoniously and productively as a team. Children are respected and their individuality encouraged and supported.

School Values

Respect:

Respect at Duffy Primary School means treating others with the sensitivity, courtesy and understanding we would wish for ourselves, and recognising that everyone has something to offer.

  • We take pride in our work
  • We value and acknowledge the contribution of others
  • We value diversity
  • We relate to people in a fair, decent and caring manner
Responsible:

Responsibility is taking ownership of our words, thoughts, actions and results. It means that if I say I will do something, then I will. If I think I should do something, then I will and if something goes wrong, I will work to fix it.

  • We embrace challenges with agility and purpose
  • We take ownership of decisions and learn from experiences
  • We work together to resolve problems if they arise
Inclusive:

Inclusivity is ensuring all students, teachers and the community have a sense of belonging to Duffy Primary School. We know that individuals are strengthened by valuing those around us and that we learn from and with everyone.

  • We inspire others to fulfil their potential
  • We act with empathy and value and promote equity
  • We build partnerships that create opportunities
