School Vision Statement
Umina Beach Public School is committed to developing every child to be the best they can be academically, socially, emotionally and ethically through active participation in their learning. Students will leave the school with strong foundations for life long learning and respectful, responsible citizenship in an ever changing society.
Umina Beach Public School is a large, comprehensive K–6 public school with a current population of 770 students. The 30 mainstream classes were organised in mixed ability groups. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students make up 6.5% of the school population. Our students come from a range of socio–economic backgrounds and parents are supportive of the school and its endeavours. The socio–economic makeup of the student population is diverse with approximately 35 nationalities represented within the school. Students are supported by classroom teachers, four Assistant Principals, two Deputy Principals, a Principal, office staff and School learning Support Officers (SLSO). The school receives socio–economic and Aboriginal funding through the School Based Resource Allocation (SBRA). In partnership with School Council, funds are monitored and distributed to programs across the school. The experienced staff are committed and support a range of extra curricula activities including comedy club, bands, choirs, dance groups, a school parliament, recorder group and numerous sporting team representation at zone and regional levels. The Learning Support Team has been recognised as a model of best practice and capably supports the needs of our students through regular weekly meetings, referrals to other agencies and provision of School Learning Support Officers to ensure participation of all students in all curriculum activities. The school is a participant in the Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) program, with a focus on social and emotional wellbeing. The school has an effective School Council and a hardworking P & C who donate in excess of $20,000 to the school each year. The school is an active member of the Brisbane Water Learning Community and the Koorana AECG and values the consultative partnerships that exist.
