Clyde Fenton Primary School is situated in the town of Katherine, in the Northern Territory of Australia. Clyde Fenton School was named after the first Flying Doctor, Dr Clyde Fenton. Clyde Fenton School is attended by approx. 315 children from Pre-school to Year 6.
We have a clear focus on lifelong learning outcomes for students underpinned by an environment of positive behaviour support using strategies from the TRIBES process. TRIBES creates a culture that maximises learning and development through 5 major agreements: mutual respect; participate fully; personal best; listen attentively; give appreciation. This vision will facilitate our emergence as a learning organisation within a learning community that responds in innovative ways to the educational needs of all. Children are the starting point for our strategy about the future of the school – what they should know, understand, value and be able to do as a result of the education we provide.
