Our Staff - Recruit, Retain, Improve
Students and parents and in our school community deserve teachers and support staff who are dedicated, energetic and committed to learning. Anything else is unacceptable. We invest in and value our Staff because we know that, in a very real sense, our Staff helps shape the future of our students.
At St Helena's we know from the research that teachers are the single most important factor within schools that determines the quality of a child's education. So attracting and keeping the best and brightest people who are passionate about educating our students is what we continually seek to do.
Improving Teacher Performance
In order to continually improve and not to let 'good' be a stumbling block to 'better' we provide our Staff continually with opportunities to strengthen their teaching practice and stay in touch with advances, innovations and research in their profession.
Valuing Quality Teaching
Indeed, understanding what comprises good teaching and ensuring that quality teaching takes place right across our school is critical to improving the overall performance of teachers and the achievements of our students.
