Learning Priorities


We are committed to improving student outcomes in English, Mathematics and Science, with a minor focus on the Arts. We are committed to promoting the National Achievement Standards in all subject areas.

Literacy Belief Statement

At Salisbury Park Primary School we believe that a consistent whole site approach to the teaching of Literacy and Numeracy is essential to improving learner outcomes and life opportunities for our students.

Effective literacy skills are the foundation of lifelong learning.  Being literate builds confidence and self-esteem, and enables greater opportunities to participate, function and contribute to our community.

We believe that student outcomes will improve when site leaders, teachers and curriculum planners share a common vocabulary and common pedagogy for the explicit teaching of reading, writing and mathematics. This common vocabulary and pedagogical approach is continually developed through a commitment to high quality ongoing professional learning.

At Salisbury Park we are committed to differentiating the curriculum for a diverse range of learners. Differentiation is based on the ongoing collection and analysis of a range of data that informs the teaching and learning cycle for our staff and students.

At Salisbury Park we believe in ‘digging fewer holes deeper’ and together ‘we are only as strong as our weakest link.’

Our Specific Learning Priorities are, in simple terms, to:

  • Improve the reading and comprehension levels of all students
  • Improve the writing levels of all students
  • Improve the mathematics outcomes for all students
