About Us - Our Values

Values and beliefs strongly influence the decisions we make, our behaviours and procedures, as individuals, as a school and as a community. The core values, beliefs and practices outlined here underpin all we aim to achieve and do at Upper Ferntree Gully Primary School.

Our school is built on:

Respect: We respect ourselves by valuing who we are and doing our personal best. We respect others by treating them fairly and in the way we would like to be treated. We respect our community by being inclusive/friendly to others and taking care of our environment.

Integrity: We are honest with each other. We are accountable for the decisions we make. We own up to our mistakes.

Resilience: We accept feedback and use it for improvement. We bounce back when things just don’t seem to be going right. We make an effort to make things right again.

Teamwork: We make sure that we contribute. We make sure that we encourage and give others the opportunity to contribute. We work together to achieve the best we possibly can.
