Eaton Primary School (5158)

School Overview

Our vision is to provide every child with a high quality education in a supportive and relevant environment, whatever their ability, whatever their needs.

Sitting on the highest point in Eaton (10 kilometres north of Bunbury) our school has a fitting motto of 'Ever Higher'. Our 440 Kindergarten to Year 6 students are supported to strive 'Ever Higher' with our important values based on courage, respect and excellence.

Our teachers are capable, energetic and enthusiastic helping Eaton Primary School be recognised as an 'Excellent School' in 2011.

Our school has a dedicated Students at Educational Risk teacher, a Learning Support Coordinator and programs for extension and challenge in Coding, Robotics and Circus. Helping students to develop resilience and physical wellbeing, our school has several nature play areas and a dedicated bike track that is used during the day.

Our school also uses its network of local schools to share resources and assist students to achieve to the best of their ability. With a student services team dedicated to nurturing the social and emotional wellbeing of students, Eaton Primary School provides students with all-round support.

This student services team, the teaching staff and the very active Parents and Citizens Association work closely together each year to stage the Eaton Foreshore Festival, a one-day festival of markets, food vans and side show alley that attracts up to 5,000 visitors.

The Foreshore Festival provides funds to support the school chaplaincy program, information technology software and hardware and other educational programs. This community of volunteers and school staff working together gives Eaton Primary School a sense of being a local hub and makes it a highly sought after school for local children.

In 2016/17 the school underwent major renovations to update existing facilities to include wet areas between classrooms, the addition of classroom kitchens and the opening up of spaces to encourage teacher and student collaborative learning.

Our students have certainly made the most of these changes with a sense of excellence clearly demonstrated throughout the school. In 2018, the Australian Curriculum and Reporting Authority recognised Eaton Primary School as demonstrating substantially above average gains in reading in the 2017 NAPLAN.
