Winterfold Primary School (5009)

School Overview

Winterfold Primary School is an Independent Public School of choice.

We cater for students in Kindergarten to Year 6 and are a school with a strong community focus. Situated in the area of Beaconsfield, located south east of Fremantle with Fremantle College and Challenger TAFE both in walking distance.

As an Independent Public School we use our increased flexibilities and responsibilities to make local decisions across a range of school operations to enhance education outcomes for our students.
The school, in collaboration with our committed board, establishes our school vision that reflects the aspirations and needs of our community.
Winterfold Primary school has a strong focus on Literacy, Numeracy and Science; teachers plan specifically to cater for all learning needs. The school has a very stable and highly skilled staff where ongoing collaborative planning is the norm. The leadership structure is very flat with most staff earning the position of Senior Teacher, whereby they take on a variety of leadership roles. This support enables the school to further enrich the learning opportunities as well as ensuring inclusivity.

Winterfold has a cosmopolitan student population containing at least 18 different nationalities all culminating to create a wonderful diversity of cultures. The school and the local community share a very healthy and harmonious relationship with all school events being well patronised by parents.

Over the last 6 years we have enjoyed upgrades in excess of $2.4 million. Winterfold Primary School is situated on a large site, where the students have plenty of room to play. There are four teaching blocks; a purpose built Visual Arts Centre, Performance Art Centre, library, staffroom, undercover area and an onsite child care facility. Our students have a choice of two playgrounds and a Nature Play area in addition to two large ovals.

We endeavour to give all our students a well-rounded education where we build students' resiliency skills and have a strong focus on Student Services and Pastoral Care. To ensure we have the emotional healthy students Winterfold Primary has a Learning Support Coordinator, a School Chaplain and an in house Social / Emotional Team. Selected Year 6 students take part in the Instrumental Music Program at Fremantle College and Year 5-6 selected students attend a range of Primary Extension and Challenge programs (PEAC). We provide our students with leadership opportunities and acknowledge their achievements in the areas of academics, Physical Education and the Arts. Winterfold's student support policy revolves around restorative practices, where students are frequently counselled and where positive incentives dominate.

We are engaged with our local community and through close consultation with the Fremantle City Council we have established a 'Living Classroom Garden'. The garden has opened another curriculum avenue where each classroom has the ability to develop and harvest a vegetable garden bed. Our five-star school canteen (only two in the State) is also able to access fresh produce to use in student lunches.
Our Parents and Citizens Association (P&C) provides strong support to the school and organises a variety of activities that bring our school community together. In addition to fundraising - they also organise annual events such as mother and father parent day breakfasts and willingly assist in school and community initiatives that may require additional parent help.
