Vi­sion to­ward ex­cel­lence


BAKEWELL Pri­mary School strongly be­lieves qual­ity teach­ing makes a dif­fer­ence and strives to build and en­cour­age teacher ex­cel­lence through a range of com­mon plan­ning struc­tures and pro­fes­sional learn­ing.

With over 870 stu­dents from Preschool to Year 6, both stu­dents and teach­ers at Bakewell are pro­vided with in­no­va­tive ed­u­ca­tional op­por­tu­ni­ties, pow­er­ful learn­ing tools and the daily sup­port they need to thrive through the pos­i­tive cul­ture of the school.

Bakewell is the only cer­ti­fied AVID (Ad­vance­ment via In­di­vid­ual De­ter­mi­na­tion) school in the NT and one of the first schools na­tion­ally.

Bakewell prin­ci­pal Paul Ny­huis is the vi­sion­ary leader of the school and a driv­ing force be­hind the high per­form­ing learn­ing cul­ture.

The team at Bakewell are pro­vided with ex­ten­sive pro­fes­sional devel­op­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties, per­for­mance devel­op­ment con­ver­sa­tions, com­mon plan­ning team ses­sions and demon­stra­tion les­sons.

Cur­rently on a quest to at­tract and re­tain high qual­ity teach­ers, Bakewell prides it­self on its cur­rent ex­pert and award win­ning teach­ing team

. Mr Ny­huis be­lieves the team make the dif­fer­ence.

“We re­gard high qual­ity teach­ers to be fun­da­men­tal to our com­mit­ment to de­liv­er­ing ‘Ex­cel­lence in Ed­u­ca­tion’ in the North­ern Ter­ri­tory,” he said.

There are many at­trac­tive ben­e­fits for new re­cruits to Bakewell, with all new teach­ers re­ceiv­ing an iPad and lap­top to sup­port con­tem­po­rary teach­ing and learn­ing, a $5,000 pro­fes­sional learn­ing grant to be ac­cessed over two years and as­sis­tance with re­lo­ca­tion costs avail­able in some cir­cum­stances.

Ad­di­tion­ally, staff have ac­cess to a col­lab­o­ra­tive team and year level plan­ning time in a sup­port­ive en­vi­ron­ment with a high func­tion­ing or­gan­i­sa­tional struc­ture and cul­ture, all in trop­i­cal and well main­tained school grounds.

With count­less op­por­tu­ni­ties for stu­dents and ed­u­ca­tors to ex­cel and prid­ing it­self on pos­i­tive re­la­tion­ships and high ex­pec­ta­tions, Bakewell Pri­mary shares its code of con­duct as ‘Be Re­spect­ful, Be Re­spon­si­ble and Be Part of the So­lu­tion’.

Over­all, the en­tire teach­ing staff at the school be­lieve de­vel­op­ing pos­i­tive re­la­tion­ships with stu­dents and their fam­i­lies is the key in sup­port­ing stu­dents to be suc­cess­ful learn­ers.

Bakewell Pri­mary pro­motes a strong con­nec­tion with the wider com­mu­nity and en­cour­ages Re­spect, Ex­cel­lence, Courage and Pride as the school’s val­ues and ‘RECiPe’ for suc­cess.

If you would like to be part of a high per­form­ing team that de­liv­ers con­tem­po­rary ed­u­ca­tion with aca­demic rigour, then we would like to hear from you.
