As part of Sydney Catholic Schools, we employ highly qualified and competent teachers who are accredited by the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA). To continuously improve our practice, teachers also work towards the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers, from proficient teacher to lead teacher level.
The delivery of quality curriculum, pedagogy (teaching methods) and assessment is ensured by our system of schools through the provision of contemporary NESA accredited professional learning in a range of modes. Our Centres of Excellence offer online learning and external face-to-face courses, and timely, collaborative and relevant in-situ learning take place within the context of each classroom. Sydney Catholic Schools’ teachers are strongly committed to their ongoing learning, with many having completed, or are currently undertaking, postgraduate studies in areas related to curriculum, student wellbeing, special education, theology, pastoral care and leadership.
Our dedicated teachers and staff at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School Belmore know their students individually and build their confidence to meet the high expectations they set for themselves.
To ensure they are effective in their role, teachers at our school value their professional learning to build stronger relationships with their students and parents, encompassing our values around respect and kindness. They engage in a rich, personalised curriculum of their own and stay current by utilising online learning modules and professional development in literacy and numeracy.
