At Beeliar Primary School we have a moral purpose to be a school of excellence.  Our Business Plan has 6 Focus Areas, one being Leadership. The strategic direction of the school directly aligns with the Department of Education’s Focus and Building on Strength documents.  We believe that teachers have the highest effect size on student improvement, and we are determined to build teacher capacity and ensure excellence in teaching in every classroom.

As stated in our 2022- 2024 Business Plan, developing a distributed leadership team is one of our main priorities.  The distributed leadership team provide coaching, modelling and classroom support for teachers.  They lead projects throughout the school and are accountable for ensuring our whole school programmes are implemented with fidelity.  The distributed leadership team meet every regularly to discuss and review our strategic plan.

At Beeliar Primary School the executive team are dedicated to Developing Others.  This is evident in the Performance Development process and the opportunities provided for staff to take on leadership roles.  The principal and deputy principals mentor aspirant leaders and support their career pathways.  Through our Power Hour structure staff are supported through block leaders and coaches to provide professional learning and collaborative planning opportunities which align with our whole school connected practices. As a school we continue to look for ways for all staff to take on leadership roles. This will continue to be a focus in 2024 and 2025.

As well as staff leadership opportunities our students have allocated roles as Faction Captains and School Councillors which is highly valued in our school. Other opportunities such as the chicken champions and waste wise warriors provide opportunities for leadership from our junior students to support and promote our sustainability goals.
