National Quality Standard

School staff use the National Quality Standard to optimise development and learning in Kindergarten to Year 2. A continuous reflection and improvement cycle is embedded to
reflect on practices, identify strengths, identify areas for improvement and monitor progress.

The National Quality Standard (NQS) includes seven quality areas:
Educational
program and
practice  
Children’s
health and
safety
Physical environment
Staffing arrangements
Relationships
with children
Collaborative partnerships with families and communities
Governance
and
leadership

The current focus at O'Connor Primary School is:

Physical Environment

The physical environment is our current focus to support children’s wellbeing, creativity and developing independence. We plan to provide a diverse range of experiences that promote children’s learning and development whilst creating spaces that keep children safe.
