Maida Vale Primary School is set at the foot of the Darling Escarpment and enjoys a positive reputation within the school community and beyond.
The school has an ongoing focus upon excellence in literacy, numeracy and science. Commencing 2015 Maida Vale Primary School commenced a particular focus upon the ‘Arts’ which includes both Music and Visual Arts instruction. This ‘Arts’ focus supports the majority of students who choose to attend Kalamunda Senior High School which also has a focus upon the ‘Arts’.
Our Language Other than English – Italian, also supports the students who attend Kalamunda Senior High School where LOTE remains an important learning area.
In addition to this Maida Vale provides Physical Education instruction from Kindy to 6 and supports those students who choose to pursue a pathway into Darling Range Sports College through one of their specialist sports programs.
The school has a strong school vision that all staff are committed to as well as a high focus upon the values of;
Respect – for self for others, our school, our community
Resilience - capacity to continue forward, never give up
Cooperation - supporting others, working together
Commitment – persevere and see something through.
We have four key objectives that drive our focus areas and strategic direction.
1. TO MAKE EVERY STUDENT A SUCCESSFUL STUDENT
We want all our students to leave school well prepared for their future, equipped to prosper economically, be happy and secure in themselves, and ready to contribute to their community.
2. TO HAVE SOUND TEACHING PRACTICE IN EVERY CLASSROOM
We want our teachers and school leaders to take a personalised approach to helping each student take the next step in their learning so they can work towards achieving their potential.
3. TO BE A SCHOOL OF FIRST CHOICE IN OUR COMMUNITY
We want our school to provide a safe and welcoming environment with programs that challenge and engage our students and attract high quality teachers.
4. TO HAVE A SCHOOL CULTURE THAT IS INNOVATIVE, RESPONSIVE AND ACCOUNTABLE.
We want our teachers to be accountable for the progress of students in their class, and to be accountable for their performance.
To accomplish these objectives the school has 4 focus areas.
1. Teaching & Learning (In academic and Non-academic areas) 2. Excellence in Staff Capacity (teaching & leadership ) 3. Learning Environment (providing a vibrant, safe and engaging learning environment) 4. Community Relationships (Positive connectivity with the school and wider community)
For more information I encourage you to view the school business plan as well as the other documents relevant to the school’s governance.
We share information with the community through a dedicated School Facebook page and an M.V.P.S. Parents page. We also share information through the use of an LED sign located on Kalamunda Road outside the school.
