The Organisational Structure
The St Spyridon College organisational structure, aims to create a K-12 experience for St Spyridon College students that is focused on their learning and maturation needs at each distinctive phase of schooling. Such an experience provides for students a safe and secure context of known and trusted adults, within which to grow and learn. The school is organised into two Sub-schools and four Learning Teams as follows:
The Sub-Schools and Learning teams:
- Create for teachers and learners a sense of belonging, and a context for building trust and confidence.
- Enable parents to relate to a team of teachers as well as a body of parents with ease and confidence.
- Provide teachers with a shared context for managing the pastoral care and learning needs of a definable group of students.
- Foster a student-centred, reflective and responsive professional culture.
- Develop shared expertise on educational issues pertaining to a specific cohort of students.
- Provide students with learning contexts where there is sustained and purposeful contact between older and younger students.
- Develop students’ skills to manage relationships at various levels, to learn from others and to teach others. Within this context they develop responsibility and leadership skills.
- Develop learning communities within which learners and teachers know each other well.
- Maintain and strengthen a sense of community and connectedness across the whole school.
