Our Vision and Values
At Nine Mile Ride Primary School we take pride in developing outstanding young people by having the highest expectations of all our students and knowing each child well. We challenge our students to strive for academic, creative, emotional, sporting and personal success within a broad, vibrant and enriched curriculum.
Learning for Life – together we discover, nurture, achieve and shine
Our vision is for all students to leave Nine Mile Ride as independent learners with the knowledge, concepts, skills and attitudes to prepare them for the next stages in their education and to contribute positively to society.
Our values of being respectful, resilient, resourceful and reflective enable students to develop a personal ethic and a moral attitude that positively affects their behaviour and equips them with the skills needed for successful lives both now and in the future.
We celebrate growth mindsets and promote learning power skills to ensure that students are capable of doing new things, being creative and inventive and are not frightened to make mistakes. The careers and jobs that our children will be doing when they leave formal schooling may not have been invented yet so our focus is all about getting our students ready for life. We encourage students to take ownership of, and responsibility for, their learning and decisions, so they have the confidence and curiosity to ask questions, solve problems and communicate well.
The heart of our school ethos is inclusiveness – giving all our students an opportunity to shine, and recognising and valuing others.
