Staff

Foundation staff of West Byford PS will establish a vibrant, dynamic school culture that focuses on whole school approaches and student performance. They will work collaboratively in learning teams and contribute to a culture of sharing and collegiate support. All staff will be encouraged to foster innovation and work in areas of strength.

Staff will all be expected to commit to whole school approaches and policies; integrate ICT into classroom programs, and employ direct instruction of specific skills needed for student success in Numeracy and Literacy.
