An Extended Services School
Roseworth Primary School has developed a model of educational delivery that embraces an Extended Services philosophy whereby the school shares its premises with partner organisations. The three major partners of the Roseworth Primary School are Edith Cowan University, The Smith Family and The Fogarty Foundation. Working collaboratively with these partners Roseworth is able to access professional growth for staff and to engage wider community support for the school.
Additional facilities for research and professional learning and administration offices have been added to the school infrastructure to enable close partnerships with Edith Cowan University, The Fogarty Foundation and The Smith Family. The 'ECU Fogarty Professional Learning Centre' consisting of a research classroom and observation room, provides the school with opportunities to engage in research and development amongst school staff, Edith Cowan University researchers and Pre-Service teachers. The 'ECU Residency' program also operates within the school, leading the way in embedding ECU pre-service teachers in the Roseworth Primary School setting.
The Classroom Management and Strategies Team providing services to schools in the North Metropolitan Education Region is also co-located on the school site. The CMS Team provides skills-based professional learning in classroom management and instructional skills for the staff of Roseworth Primary School as well as staff across the region.
Further examples of extended services include an agreement with the Health Department of WA to provide a School Dental Service for students from K - 11 as well as a Community Health Nurse Service, both located on the Roseworth Primary School site.
The construction of a Child and Parent Centre on the site of our school further develops the school's capacity to extend our school operations to the wider community and continue to develop services which meet the needs of our local community.
