Inglewood Primary School (5216)



School Overview



Inglewood Primary School is a proud Independent Public School providing a stimulating educational environment for our 550 Kindergarten to Year 6 students.

By developing their academic, social and physical skills, students can recognise their own worth, as they participate as informed and active members of a global society.

At Inglewood Primary School we collectively value and promote:
* Academic and social competence
* Healthy lifestyle choices
* Resilience and persistence
* Creativity and development of the 'whole child'
* Critical thinking and accountable decision making
* Active local and global citizenship through a variety of virtues

Our school's strategic direction is categorised into four interweaving priority areas:
1. Effective and relevant teaching
2. Engaged and successful students
3. Meaningful community relationships
4. Transparent and timely governance

Our staff are experienced and committed to the objectives of the Inglewood Primary School Business Plan. The specialist subject areas are music, physical education, humanities and social sciences, science and languages other than English (LOTE) program is Italian for Years 1 to 6.

The Learning Support Services Team, includes our school chaplain, school psychologist, learning support teacher and social and emotional level 3 teacher and Principal. This team play a pivotal role in supporting the staff and students social and emotional well-being in the whole school, as well as focusing on students at educational risk or students with diagnosed disabilities. The Friendly Schools Plus program is implemented across the school, to enhance student behaviour and well-being.

A large number of students attend the District's Primary Extension and Challenge (PEAC) and master classes at John Forrest Secondary College. Inglewood Primary School has a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) program where all students from Years 4 - 6 bring an iPad to school to use as a tool in daily lessons.

Every year a number of graduates from the school are selected to join the Mount Lawley Senior High School visual and performing arts program as well as specialist academic, sporting and music programs at other schools.

Our school has a junior and senior choir, a string ensemble and various School of Instrumental Music classes for violin, cello, clarinet, flute and brass. Performances at assemblies throughout the year and at the open night enrich our school. We also host a number of extra-curricular activities for students such as a sustainable veggie garden, lego club, skipping troupe, a budding scientist club, student leadership programs and before school fitness clubs.

We have a school board consisting of five parents and two community members, four staff members and the Principal. Meetings to discuss, monitor and plan for school improvement are held twice a term.

The Parents and Citizens' Association(P&C) play a very active role within the school, both by fundraising and holding events for parents to get together and become part of the school community. Such events include a welcome night early in the new year, quiz nights, movie nights, discos for children, an Easter raffle, Safety House assembly and play, and a walkathon. The efforts of the P&C not only provide funds to enhance enrichment programs but also engender a strong community feeling and sense of ownership that is an important feature of the school community. The canteen, parent liaison group and safety house committees all enhance the school communication and community. Our local families reflect the multi-cultural society of Western Australia.

Inglewood Primary School spans across three sites, with separate off-site centres for Kindergarten and Pre-Primary.
