Our teachers know their students and work with them to help them realise their potential as learners. Our focus on authentic learning and authentic assessment ensures that we challenge our students to grow in their learning and achieve their personal best.

Throughout our community of Sydney Catholic schools, we have shown high performance of our students in measures such as NAPLAN and the HSC.

We are proud to acknowledge the various achievements of St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School Riverwood students. We strive to ensure students achieve the high expectations set for themselves academically and as a citizen. It is a joy to share with the community our achievements in school assemblies and newsletters.

The school’s Annual Plan provided for a range of key improvement strategies to be delivered each year. The key improvements resulting from the enactment of the plan this year so far include:

  • strengthening quality pedagogical practices in the teaching of Religious Education (K-6)
  • nurturing and deepening students’ knowledge and understanding of the Catholic tradition
  • sustaining quality teaching practices particularly in the areas of English and Mathematics
  • further embedding the key principles of the the regional Quality Literacy Teaching program
  • teachers and students setting explicit learning goals and teachers providing feedback to students to improve learning outcomes
  • the development of a comprehensive program of professional learning, aligned to the
    Teacher Standards and the school’s Annual Improvement Plan.
