Professional Learning Community – PLC.
At Grey Street Primary School, we are a Professional Learning Community. Teachers work collaboratively, across year levels, to support all students at their point of need. Teachers meet weekly to ensure your child is progressing, and to ensure that your child makes growth in their learning. This means, whilst your child may have their classroom teacher, they also have the skills, knowledge and expertise of all teachers in their year level, working together, to improve the learning outcomes of your child.
We pride ourselves on providing an inclusive environment that caters for every student. We provide the most relevant, up to date teaching practices, preparing our students for all their future endeavours.
