Jolimont Primary School (5226)

School Overview

Jolimont Primary School staff challenge and inspire students to meet their individual potential. As an Independent Public School, we are empowered to use our expertise to meet the needs and interests of our students and community. We inspire joy in learning by providing highly engaging and motivating student-centred learning programs. In this way, we are able to encourage and challenge our children to become global citizens.

Our vision reflects contemporary excellence, inclusiveness and encompasses the school motto of Go Forward with Us. We are a blend of cultures, ideas, innovation and imagination and we celebrate diversity, achievement and excellence.

We are exceptionally proud to be the 2017 WA School of the Year. This award acknowledges the dedication, commitment to excellence and partnerships which make Jolimont Primary School such an outstanding school.

Our early years programs are highly regarded and renowned for their explicit teaching of literacy and numeracy and draw from children's own interests and lives. Children actively investigate a range of skills and experiences for life either through planned play or projects. These programs are recognised as innovative and reflect current best practice in early childhood education. As a Teacher Development School, we regularly exhibit our learning programs and share our teaching expertise with visiting teachers from our network and around the state.

The middle and upper school programs develop skills for lifelong learning. Project-based programs enhance creative and critical thinking, problem solving, and develop self-concept and intrinsic motivation. Our students have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of extra curricular activities and programs which encourage and develop personal growth, leadership skills, resilience and intellect.

Our vision is to nurture and empower each other to pursue our best.

Our mission is to inspire in our children a joy of learning and instil the courage to succeed as global citizens.

We are committed to the school values of:

- Respect - We are kind and considerate and value others' views.

- Integrity - We are upstanding and honest.

- Excellence - We are committed to achieving our best.

- Care - We show empathy and understanding.

We offer a broad curriculum with a strong emphasis on Literacy and Numeracy, focused on the achievement of the West Australian Curriculum outcomes. Special programs in Digital Technologies, Visual Arts, Music, Japanese, Physical Education and Sustainability enrich the school curriculum.
