Vision and Values

"Learning, exploring, reaching for success"

Dundale Vision

Our vision is to be a school where all our children thrive, love learning and develop resilient foundations for success in life as positive members of society:


  • We are a diverse and inclusive community that truly values the vast unknowable potential and voice of each person.

  • We will actively work together in mutual respect for the happiness and wellbeing of the school community as a whole.

  • We have an engaging, irresistible curriculum that fosters deep learning of values, skills, concepts and powerful knowledge.


Key enablers:

  • Assessment that is transparent and serves each learner to know what they are capable of now and what to do to improve in future.

  • Promotion of active citizenship and dialogue

  • Coherent systems, policies and procedures in place to promote the development of values and learner characteristics

  • A growth-mindset culture across the community evident in language, systems and equal opportunities.
