The Standards and Expectations for our College Community
As a College Community we care for the safety and wellbeing of all students. We have expectations for all of us in order to achieve the best possible outcomes.
We expect every teacher:
- In every lesson, to make it clear to the students, the Learning Intention (purpose) and success criteria of the lesson.
- To ensure explicit teaching is an integral part of the routine of the lesson.
- To give every student meaningful feedback on their learning, both verbal and written, in a regular and timely manner.
- To seek feedback from students as to how effectively they perceive they are being taught.
- To have a positive working relationship with each student.
We expect every student to arrive at school, every day, in correct uniform organised and ready for the day’s learning; and to:
- Realise that learning involves the challenge of mastering a skill or knowledge that was unknown before
- That organisation, hard work (persistence) and resilience are the keys to success at anything
We expect every parent and carer to:
- Value education, which means supporting the work of the teaching staff
- Be supportive in ensuring their child can “work at their learning” outside of school hours.
- Invest in their child’s education through time and money (which this school keeps up to a minimum) and encouraging their child to participate in the rich variety of activities this school offers its students.
Students, parents and carers, and staff can expect the Broadford Secondary College administration team to lead the College to the highest standards of accountability, and take ultimate responsibility, for all of the school based facets above.
Together we can support our students to Aspire – Strive – Achieve through our values of;
