Harlaxton State School

 Harlaxton State School is the Home of the Whole Child. We firmly believe the students at Harlaxton School must have their physical, cultural, community, social/emotional and academic needs met in order to remain resilient and perform well at school.
Our vision for the school is- The Whole Child: Making Connections- Creating Opportunities.
Forming partnerships with parents and community organizations is an integral Harlaxton State School strategy to maximise success rates for students. Parents are their child’s first teachers and the school is eager to support parents by providing a range of services that will enhance their capability, to assist their children.

We are committed to achieving high quality outcomes for our students in academic, sporting and cultural fields. We strive to improve on the quality of education that we deliver through strategies that encourage continuous improvement in every student.
We provide an academic curriculum that develops a broad range of knowledge across a range of fundamental areas while we also successfully cater for students who either need to be extended or supported. Our school delivers this curriculum in an environment that is both supportive and challenging.
We hold high expectations for our students both in their school work and their behaviour. These expectations are complemented by our school values that guide our actions and behaviours throughout the school. Our values of Respect, Relationships and Resilience are shared across all parties in our school community and are evident across our school. Our school is a Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) School and we have a weekly behaviour focus. Students are rewarded for applying the focus of the week. The focus is taught at the weekly parade and re-enforced in lessons in the classes.
Harlaxton State School priorities for 2016 is to:
• build teacher data literacy skills to identify starting points for teaching, tracking, monitoring and analysing student learning reflecting on teacher practice.
• ensure assessment tools appropriate to curriculum and aligned to achievement standards for benchmarking student growth in reading, comprehending and speaking
• implement the Australian and Queensland Curriculum while using professional development in coaching and feedback to build a strong collegial and self-reflective feedback culture
• enhance Parent and Community engagement with the school by creating learning opportunities for them to take a close interest in the work of the school and to be welcomed as partners in their student’s learning journey
• Closing the Gap between indigenous and non-indigenous academic results and attendance rates
