Our school celebrates diversity with over 88% of our students from language backgrounds other than English and representing a wide variety of cultural groups. The school promotes understanding, acceptance and inclusivity in all programs. These experiences allow students to engage and succeed in a rapidly changing world.
Through our situational analysis, we have identified a need to further develop and refine data driven practices, ensuring all students have access to individualised, purposeful learning, through informed, evidence based decision making. A focus on further developing and refining summative and formative assessment tasks, data collection, analysis practices, adjustments to learning programs and developing greater consistency of judgement within and across the school will be evident.
We are committed to providing innovative programs to develop skills in citizenship, communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity, to ensure students reach their full potential. Our school has a reputation for excellence in academic achievement, sporting programs and performance in the creative arts.
Through our situational analysis, Tell Them From Me data, reflects the need to ensure all students have a sense of belonging, to feel included and have a connection to all members of the school community.
Matthew Pearce Public School enjoys vibrant community partnership that enhances our school identity. Our active Parents and Citizens Association plays a vital role in supporting school programs and improving educational outcomes for all students.
