The staff at Madeley Primary School are committed to achieving excellence. Our new Vision Statement says:
“Madeley Primary School will nurture and promote life-long learners within a positive school community where respect is valued and independence and excellence are expected.”
We seek to promote excellence in the programs we provide and in the work we do. Through our striving for excellence we model to our students that we expect them to do their very best to achieve their very best...this is excellence.
The Ashdale Cluster which includes Madeley, is focusing on developing reflective practice as part of the process of improvement and hence achieving even greater excellence. One strategy that we are using as part of the reflective practice process is video recording lessons. Teachers have identified areas of their practice that they would like to develop and are videoing parts of their lessons in order to provide clear and useful information that they can reflect on. Teachers will use this information to modify various aspects of their teaching practice. This is a powerful tool for self-improvement.
