Site Improvement Priorities

At St Agnes we believe that it is important that all staff share the ‘collective responsibility’ for the improvement of learning outcomes for young people. Consequently we are developing a ‘whole school language’ and ‘consistency of approach’ amongst our staff and SSO’s when sharing our pedagogy. Our site Priorities include:


Developing a common understanding of effective pedagogy and strategies to teach mathematics and differentiate for the success of all students (in particular problem solving and reasoning)


Develop a common understanding of approach to teaching Literacy (in particular Reading Comprehension) incorporating the explicit teaching of these skills

“Learning today, leading tomorrow”

As our school motto indicates along with the curriculum, St Agnes School, we believe that learning also incorporates personal development and social and emotional learning through a variety of other curriculum and extra curriculum programmes. These include:

Preschool- Yr. 2 creative play activity

Students from across the preschool (onsite) and junior primary come together each fortnight to engage in creative play activities, promoting closer connections and transition between the two early year’s settings.

Extra Curriculum Activities

• Choir, band, festivals, concerts and ‘incursions’
• School sporting teams, local teams and SAPSASA sport
• Camps and excursions
• PCW (Pastoral Care Worker) lunch time activities and events
