Our Vision and Values


Ceres Primary School aims to provide a safe and caring learning environment where all students are respected as individuals and where teachers and families work together to promote learning. We strive towards the healthy development of every child so that each has the knowledge, skills and resilience to be successful in a rapidly changing world.





At Ceres Primary School, we pride ourselves on our use of 'The Super 7' Values in our school community. Our Staff and Students have embedded the values in our Language, Learning and Play, and when you walk through our school you can see and hear the values in all areas. 


Feedback, in particular from new families to the school, is often how surprised they are at how quickly the school values become part of the language at school, but also how they flow into the homes and lives of our school community. 


The Super 7 Values were created by our staff in consultation with our Student Voice and Leadership group. Together this group worked to identify a set of values that not only represented the school community, but allowed our students to feel safe, supported and challenged in the school environment. 


The Values form an integral part of our schools reward system, with students being acknowledged for their efforts to embody the values in the classroom through 'Credit Points', at School Assembly awards and through Principals Awards Stickers (which are highly sought after by our students!)
