Brentwood Primary School (5061)

School Overview

Brentwood Primary School opened in 1956 and is situated 12 kilometres south of Perth. We provide learning programs for Kindergarten to Year 6 students. Our community consists of a multicultural population. We offer a high quality, engaging curriculum, with specialist teachers in Music which includes two choirs, Visual Arts, Physical Education, Science, English as an Additional Language or Dialect, Instrumental Music, Primary Extension & Challenge and Japanese.

Brentwood Primary School is committed to providing a quality education in an inclusive, caring, supportive and stimulating learning environment. Our quality teachers are focused on actively encouraging children to develop the essential knowledge, skills, understanding and confidence necessary for them to succeed in life. A strong emphasis is placed on the pastoral care and behaviour of students, enhancing student achievements in Literacy, Numeracy and also the use of Information and Communication Technologies across the curriculum. The pastoral care program focuses on the core values of respect, caring, responsibility, honesty and excellence. Students achieve well in NAPLAN. The school has adopted a 'continual improvement' philosophy and aims to focus on and address any areas of need in performance or operation that require support.

Our facilities include a new administration building, Early Childhood Education classrooms, a purpose built Art/Science room, Music room, and new playground equipment. These have greatly enhanced the school's programs by providing a positive learning environment and improving the appearance of the school. The school community also enjoys and uses the picturesque grounds. Many large trees, extensive grassed areas, hard courts for netball and basketball, and large oval are a feature. Our recently added Peace and Rose Gardens are both utilised by students and the community.

Our school ethos is to ensure that the students from Brentwood Primary School develop the understandings, skills and attitudes relevant to individual and society's needs, thereby enabling them to fulfil their potential. This is through an educational program that pursues excellence and relevance, promotes equality of educational opportunity and caters for individuals and groups with special needs.
