LAVERTON P-12 COLLEGE
Laverton P-12 College is in the suburb of Laverton, 21 kilometres west of Melbourne, and for many years served members of the Laverton RAAF base. Laverton P-12 College commenced in 2008 as a merger of three local schools. The school buildings and grounds are modern, well- resourced and inviting, which compliments the rigorous teaching and learning opportunities we provide. The school’s current enrolment is 730 students across Foundation to Year 12. The school has a Student Family Occupation and Education (SFOE) of 0.6525. The SFOE is an indicator of circumstances known to make a difference in student learning. The school has a diverse multicultural student population, with a significant number of our students coming from the Karen and Pacific Islander Communities.
As we progress with the work within our 2019-2022 Strategic Plan, our goals are aligned to continue building the capacity of all of our staff to deliver high quality teaching and learning programs. This goal also prioritises a sharp focus on meeting the learning needs of all of our students, particularly in relation to Reading, Writing and Numeracy. Goal One in our Strategic Plan is to improve student learning outcomes in Literacy and Numeracy for all students across the P-12 College. Goal Two is to build a learning culture of high expectations that empowers both students and staff. Goal Three is to improve student voice, agency, engagement and leadership, in an environment of high expectations and challenge, across the college.
The successes achieved to date at Laverton P-12 College can be attributed to the significant contributions and commitment from our staff and support from the school community. Laverton P-12 College is a very dynamic school community where the energy and positivity of our students is something that we are all very proud of and that is celebrated. We recognise the need to establish whole school inclusive collaborative practices and a whole school focus on Literacy and Numeracy. This is being achieved through building highly effective Professional Learning Teams in all areas across the college. Our students need to be challenged at their point of need and we support them to monitor their own learning growth so that we improve their intellectual engagement as well as responsibility for their own learning. Our focus is on prioritizing building a culture of high expectations for all key stakeholders, particularly our students and staff.
We aim to apply a relentless focus on growth for students and teachers over the course of our new strategic plan, and we will engage with the school community to support us in this key work. Our intention is to further develop a growth mindset in relation to all learning, with our students at the center of all that we do. We believe that if teachers collaborate on effective pedagogy and instructional practices, build their capacity in differentiation to the point of need for our students, then student learning growth will be enhanced.
Our school values of Learning, Belonging and Succeeding underpin all that we do at Laverton P-12 College. We continually connect these values to the teaching and learning programs and they are relevant across all stages of the learning continuum. Our values underpin a cohesive coordinated structure that enhances the wellbeing and learning opportunities for every student. In particular, our Values connect to our School Wide Positive Behaviour (SWPS) approach, and this supports our students in achieving their learning potential.
