Kensington Primary School has an active and supportive parent body and staff who work collaboratively.  We are developing our use of formative assessment to engage and respond to student needs.  Active engagement in learning and collaboration are important aspects of this process. We model respectful relationships and have high expectations for all students.  Building resilience and values are key aspects of our social-emotional learning plans, along with decision making and conflict resolution.
