Vision and Values


Banister Primary school is a vibrant, diverse and forward thinking school where all individuals share a passion to exceed expectations. We firmly believe that all children should believe in themselves and their abilities, be proud of their learning and celebrate their success.

Belief, Pride and Success

We believe that in order for our children to succeed we need to provide an enriched curriculum, building on own our children’s starting points and life experiences. As a culturally diverse school, we actively seek to promote and celebrate our similarities and differences drawing on the wealth of experience from both the children and parents alike. We encourage every child to be self-confident, inquiring, tolerant, positive, healthy, well-rounded with an independent mind, and to be an individual who respects the differences of others.

We continue to equip the school with the latest of technologies to access learning wherever the children are – in the playground, on the learning deck, classroom with and from each other or even at home. We believe that learning needs to happen everywhere and everything can be a learning experience!


At Banister we value:

  • Individuality and equality
  • Perseverance and excellence
  • Diversity and harmony
  • Tradition and innovation
  • Independence and alliance
  • Unity and community
  • Educating for life
