Marsden State School currently has 1101 students on our P-6 campus. In 2020 we expect this to allocated as 45 classes.
Marsden State School is committed to providing quality education that nurtures and extends the academic, social, spiritual and physical development of all students.
At Marsden State School, we believe:
- All curriculum is
important, and we must maintain a relentless focus on prioritising resourcing,
professional development, assessment and quality assurance processes to a
narrow and focused improvement agenda.
- Teams of teachers
make high quality consensus decisions in deciding what skills and knowledge
will be assessed when delivering relevant and engaging learning opportunities
responsibility and collaboration rather than cooperation is necessary for teachers
to build consistently high-quality pedagogy and reliable and rigorous
- In using Inquiry
Cycles, constructive and targeted feedback and research based, high yield
strategies in teaching and learning.
- Teaching and
learning through an age appropriate curriculum needs to be engaging whilst
ensuring students know the learning intentions and success criteria and how it
relates to their current or future world.
- Social skills, persistence,
resilience, positive behaviours for learning (PBL) and academic skills need to
be taught consistently throughout the school to improve engagement and to
support a calm learning environment.
- Students require
differentiated levels of support for both academic success and improved social/behavioural
communication, mutual respect, and transparency in decision making are the keys
to developing and maintaining positive relationships with staff, students and
- A high level of attendance for staff and
students is important to promote learning.
- In celebrating
success and diversity.
