Millen Primary School (5305)

School Overview

At Millen Primary we look forward to educating your child and seeing them grow, discover and prepare themselves for the future.
Located in East Victoria Park, Millen Primary School caters for children from Kindergarten to Year 6. In 2017 Millen Primary School became an Independent Public School. The school community welcomed the opportunities this provided to continue our strong focus on quality teaching in the classroom.
Our teaching team is highly motivated and professional and consists of classroom teachers and specialist teachers ranging from graduate and beginning teachers to experienced teachers. We offer programs in physical education, health, Japanese, music and visual arts.
All students participate in morning literacy and numeracy blocks and in 'Fun Fridays' our Science Technology Engineering and Maths program. The school is well equipped with technology and is now focused on providing an innovative digital technologies program.
We recognise that children have different needs and varying academic levels and adjust our programs accordingly. Intervention strategies are used for children requiring extra support or extension. We believe that our job is to ensure that every child reaches their potential and feels safe and happy at school.
Millen Primary School is proud of its cultural diversity. A significant number of overseas students attend the school. Many of these students have parents studying at Curtin University and come to Millen from all over the world. We also have Aboriginal students at Millen and those in Years 4 - 6 form our Aboriginal Leadership Team. We are proud of the work this leadership team has been doing to learn about and share their culture with our school community.
We are a Positive Behaviour Support school. Our values are Respect, Responsibility, Resilience and Excellence. The 'Millen Way' identifies the positive behaviours we explicitly teach our students to help them to successfully learn and demonstrate these values. We are very proud of the positive, respectful and inclusive learning environment we maintain.
Millen Primary School enjoys strong parental involvement. Many individual parents and community members volunteer in classrooms and at school events such as Book Week, Edu Dance, NAIDOC Week and sports carnivals throughout the year. The School Board is made up of parents and members of staff. The Board is responsible for endorsing the business plan, school policy, programs and the budget as well as being involved in reviewing the school's progress and developing new policies. The Parents and Citizens' Association supports the school through classroom involvement and fundraising activities.
Our school's achievements and areas identified for improvement are outlined each year in the Annual Report. The Business Plan outlines the strategies being implemented to achieve our goals:
Goal 1: All students are challenged and engaged
Goal 2: High quality teaching in every classroom
Goal 3: Effective leadership across the school
Goal 4: Strong governance and a connected community
