Darlington Primary School (5138)

School Overview

Darlington Primary School has a long tradition of providing a quality education to students from Kindergarten to Year 6.

Key features of our school include the early learning centre for students in Kindergarten and Pre-primary; our magnificent amphitheatre; and our classroom and lunch shed which is recognised by the National Trust as having historical significance.

Our school motto of 'Initiative, Tolerance and Trust' is regularly demonstrated in the actions of our students who achieve well both academically and socially. Our specialist programs in the arts, music and visual arts, French and physical education ensure our students receive a well-rounded education.

Our staff are experienced and dedicated, and collaborate and focus on student improvement through the use of evidence-based, reflective practices and an informed and targeted approach to learning.

Our support staff and pastoral care programs support our students' academic, social and emotional needs. We work with students identified as at risk through a team approach that involves our school, families and outside agencies, as required. Excelling students are identified and supported and take part in programs such as PEAC, the Kalamunda Extension Program and the School of Instrumental Music.

We enjoy partnerships with other schools in the community, working together to provide academic and sporting opportunities. Students participate in a variety of supplementary programs including interschool sport carnivals, science and spelling competitions, public speaking and arts exhibitions.

Many students have followed their parents and grandparents in attending our school. Students come from families where learning and education are highly valued and there is strong community feel.

All staff work closely with our parents, who volunteer and assist in a range of activities throughout the year. The school enjoys the support and involvement of a well-informed and pro-active School Council and a committed P&C.
