West Leederville Primary School (5277)

School Overview

West Leederville Primary School is located 3km west of the Perth central business district and was founded in 1898. West Leederville Primary School is a community of learners committed to best practice and visionary, innovative learning experiences that foster the skills, values and attitudes needed in the active pursuit of a sustainable & innovative global future. Our distinguishing characteristic is our commitment to learning in all forms, inside and outside the classroom, and at every stage of life.

Our original buildings are heritage listed and provide unique character with ten classrooms surrounding the traditional school hall. In 2010, a new library, music and art/science facility was completed followed by an administration building in 2011. A new seven classroom early childhood building was completed at the end of 2014. The library, music and art/science rooms are located in a wing on the east side of the grounds. There are ten classrooms in the original heritage building bordering offices, storage rooms, a wet room and a central hall. These classrooms feature high ceilings, with large window and are light and spacious. All classrooms have heating and air conditioning. Pre-primary to Year 6 students are instructed at the main school campus.

Our students are drawn from varied backgrounds and cultures. A significant feature of the school's character is as a place of interaction for the community, including local organisations, parents, students and staff. Our kindergarten students are located off site, 2 kms away, at our Dodd Street annex, situated at Lake Monger Primary School, Dodd St, Wembley.

A sense of community is an important feature of West Leederville Primary School. We recognise the importance of the local community and values their collaborative partnership in the delivery of education. Students, staff and parents participate in a wide range of programs to support, enhance and develop community relations. We enjoy a particularly strong parent and community involvement through the Parents and Citizens Association (P&C) and the School Board.

The number of classroom teachers and specialist programs has increased along with the rapid enrolment growth. Our staff are open and approachable, working with parents in classroom programs to achieve the best outcome for the students. Staff members are committed to ongoing learning, regularly attending professional development opportunities and participating in peer observation processes to enhance and strengthen classroom programs.
