Churchlands Primary School (5102)

School Overview

Churchlands Primary School was established in 1965 and continues to grow as an exemplary Independent Public School with students enrolled in Kindergarten to Year 6, representing 47 nationalities.

Our students are engaged, empowered and they excel! Our school vision is to provide all students with deep learning and experiences to develop their communication and creative skills in an environment where they are inspired to achieve their personal best.

The school's Business Plan was developed and subsequently implemented in line with the Department's strategic directions. Our priorities areas include; successful students, quality teaching and leadership and strong governance and support. Themes underpinning these priorities include; developing the whole child, quality teaching practices the a focus on visible learning, feedback and student voice, optimal well-being, habits of the mind, Digital Technologies and National Quality Standards for the early years and embedding the Western Australian Curriculum.

A strong focus is placed on the Arts. All students from Pre-primary to year 6 participate in a high quality, integrated Arts program. Most middle and upper primary students receive specialised music tuition through Instrumental Music School Services (IMSS) in wind strings or brass. They also have the opportunity to participate in the choir, orchestra or Hotnotes band in addition to their regular general music class. The Visual Art program incorporates community art projects, exhibitions and a triannual artist in residence program. Drama provides opportunities to enhance confidence, creativity and performance skills.

In 2017 we introduced the BYOD 1:1 iPad program, which enables our students to develop the digital technology and critical and creative thinking skills required for future learning success.

We promote a sustainable environment. The 9R shed is a community resource focusing on Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Students are responsible for planting, composting, caring for the worm farm, frog habitat, paper recycling and being water wise. All processes are linked to the curriculum.

The school and P&C enjoy a proactive partnership and work together to resource programs and projects. The School Board acts as the governing body focused on improving student outcomes.

Our classrooms are air conditioned and networked with multimedia facilities and common multi-purpose areas. Our school grounds are well developed and include; multi-purpose hard courts, an oval and specialised playgrounds to provide an interactive environment.

The high quality of learning at Churchlands Primary School is the result of staff working collaboratively in Professional Learning Communities to plan outcomes for students, with a focus on results in a caring environment.
