Vision & Values

Edleston is a happy inclusive school where we are all valued and learn in a caring environment.

We are considerate of others’ feelings; we are thoughtful, kind and helpful; we show respect and understanding for our diverse community and for different points of view.

We are an aspirational school with high expectations of ourselves and others. We show resilience and learn from our mistakes, we don’t give up; we are problem solvers and critical thinkers who know our goals and targets and always aspire to be our best. We are curious about the world around us and develop skills to be lifelong learners.

Edleston is a school where we all take responsibility for our learning and behaviour and strive to be Ready, Respectful and Safe to become independent, self-disciplined and resilient individuals. We have a sense of accountability, and consideration for others. We make responsible decisions, are reliable, and understand the consequences of our actions, we foster a positive and respectful school culture.

We are a happy school where enjoyment in learning, having fun and being part of the Edleston family helps us become confident and enthusiastic learners and sets us on the path to a lifelong process of learning.
