Principal’s Message

Welcome to Riverton Primary School.

At Riverton Primary School we have a clear focus on improving student learning outcomes. Teachers and support staff work together making thoughtful decisions to ensure we are focussing on the right work to improve learning for all students.

We prioritise supporting student learning above administrative tasks. Support staff work closely with teachers to ensure any intervention is planned by the teacher to address the learning needs of individuals or groups of students to meet and exceed department standards.

We are part of the Lower Mid North B-12 Local Education Partnership. We have clearly aligned our pedagogic improvement work to the partnership focus on Visible Learning (John Hattie). From January 2019 Riverton Primary School is focussing on improving numeracy achievement.

As Principal of Riverton Primary School, I lead the school in a collaborative manner building on strengths within a culture of trust and high expectations.

The core business of a school leader, is to create a learning environment that has a balance of safe conditions for learning and rigorous intellectual challenge to enable all learners to achieve their optimum.

I expect and support teachers to provide quality differentiated learning experiences that focus on what students need to know next, as they ensure students have solid foundation skills in literacy and numeracy.

I expect RESPECT to and from everyone within the school. Even when we disagree we can be respectful of each other. We enjoy a good level of respect between students, staff, parents and the community.

I am passionate about improving the learning outcomes for all learners I have responsibility for and feel very fortunate to be working at a job that I love.

Kind regards,
Cheryl Glenie M.Ed., B.Ed., Dip.T.
Principal, Riverton Primary School
