Statement of Values

Statement of Values

Woodville Primary School is committed to providing a safe, supportive and inclusive environment for all students, staff and members of our community. Our school recognises the importance of the partnership between our school and parents and carers to support student learning, engagement and wellbeing. We share a commitment to, and a responsibility for, creating an inclusive and safe school environment for our students.


The programs and teaching at Woodville Primary School support and promote the principles and practice of Australian democracy, including a commitment to:

  • elected government
  • the rule of law
  • equal rights for all before the law
  • freedom of religion
  • freedom of speech and association
  • the values of openness and tolerance.

This policy outlines our school’s vision, mission, objective, values and expectations of our school community and is available on our school website, our staff induction handbook, and enrolment/transition packs.


To celebrate and embed our Statement of Values and Philosophy in our school community, we

  • display posters and banners that promote our values in our school
  • celebrate our values in our school newsletter
  • provide awards and recognition for students who actively demonstrate the values
  • discuss our values with students in the classroom, meetings and assemblies.


Success for everyone, in everything, every day.



All Woodville students will be given every opportunity to build their capacity and belief of self as a learner and to achieve at optimum level. Background and mobility will not preclude any student from achieving a level which will enable them to successfully continue with their schooling and eventually lead a productive and fulfilling life.



Woodville Primary School’s objective is to ensure all students gain skills, knowledge and understanding from the Victorian Curriculum enabling them to successfully continue their education.



Woodville Primary School’s values are:

  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Resilience
  • Inclusiveness

We respect ourselves, our school and each another, and understand that our attitudes and behaviours have an impact on the people around us.


We are responsible for our own actions and behaviours.


We acknowledge challenges and work together to learn, and bounce back from them.  


We model and demonstrate kindness, and take every opportunity to include all and help others that may be in need.



Together we are Safe
Together we are Respectful
Together we Achieve
