The mission of Bundamba State School is to create a community of empowered learners in an atmosphere of mutual respect and trust. In partnership with the parents and the community, every student will be inspired to learn and accomplish academic, social, physical and cultural goals to become a contributing citizen.
In 2013, our school renewed our pedagogical framework and it is now constructed on four pillars: explicit instruction, formative assessment, community building and content planning. It is underpinned by the belief that all students can experience success and that with clear plans, clear targets, high expectations and high engagement we can achieve our mission.
'The framework acknowledges the impact of quality teaching and the evidence that research-validated pedagogy - implemented with consistency across a school setting and supported by instructional leadership – improves student performance and develops successful learners.’
The research of Jim Knight, John Hattie, Dylan Wiliam, Anita Archer and Charles Hughes has been influential in the decisions unpinning the development of our pedagogical framework at Bundamba State School.
The framework outlines our school policies, practices, tools and strategies that support staff in their daily business of teaching and life-long learning.
Teachers at Bundamba State School have been integral to the development of our framework and regularly re-connect to it through school-wide instructional coaching. Instructional coaches work in partnership with teachers to improve instruction, maintain high expectations and build success.
Bundamba State School is committed to student learning with an unrelenting focus on student improvement.
