Woorabinda State School is a National Partnerships school and has a 4 Year Strategic Plan which was negotiated with the community of Woorabinda in early 2010. This plan guides school improvement and innovation, however there is flexibility to allow for changing priorities.
The school's motto is 'Proud and Deadly'. In 2012 the school has 1 Head of Curriculum (funded through National Partnerships), 8 classes from Prep to year 7, a Deadly Learning Futures/Cultural Literacies teacher, 2 special needs teachers and a Physical Education teacher. The school has employed a local Indigenous community education counsellor (Funded through National Partnerships) to help make strong connections with the community and specifically focus on recruitment, enrolment and retention. There are 2 special needs teacher aides, 8 classroom teacher aides and 1 teacher aide who works in the tuckshop (nutrition program) full time. These teacher aides play a vital role in supporting teachers in the classroom. Eight of these teacher aides are Indigenous, and as such provide a strong link to the community.
