Riverton Primary School (5395)

School Overview

Riverton Primary School, an Independent Public School catering for students from Kindergarten to Year 6. We are an inclusive community where students work collaboratively in a rich learning environment to achieve their academic, social and emotional potential. We have a strong focus on English, Mathematics and Science to ensure students are supported and equipped for their future learning and experience. Other learning areas include Music, Japanese, Art, STEM and Physical Education.

Riverton Primary School motto is 'Achieve Together'. We are located between High Road and Leach Highway in the residential suburb of Riverton and share our site with Riverton Education Support Centre. Collectively, our values of inclusion, collaboration, innovation, positivity and excellence provide many opportunities for students, staff and parents to explore inclusivity across our campus.

Our school facilities include five purpose built early childhood classrooms with adjacent play areas, mainstream classrooms, specialist music and science rooms, an enclosed undercover area for assemblies, playgrounds, basketball court, netball court and a large oval. All classrooms are equipped with interactive white boards and we use IPADS to enhance student learning opportunities. A feature of the school grounds is our sustainable garden which provides a stimulating learning area between the school buildings and our outdoor nature strip. Riverton Primary has a well-established and comprehensive program in physical activity and organised sport.

Our Kindy and Pre-Primary children enjoy their own learning area and playground, with an extensive outdoor area including cubbies, sandpits and outdoor equipment.

Approximately 70 per cent of student enrolment is from a non-English speaking background and there is a wide range of international representation in the school population. Location of birth for some of the students include; China, Singapore, Malaysia, India, Sri Lanka, Korea, Iran and Iraq.

We value the Mental Health and Wellbeing of all staff and consistently aim to create and engage a positive and supportive team. Our students have access to a Pastoral Care System providing support for students in all aspects of their schooling. The Leadership Team, Chaplain, Psychologist and Teachers are available to assist all students and their families.

The School Board is a joint council with the Education Support Centre and has representation from both the Primary School and Education Support Centre. Our School Board's perspective and experience enhance the strategic development of the school.

The Parents and Citizens (P&C) Association is active and supportive, again with representation from both schools on the site. Our P&C provide the school with resources that enhance our learning programs and improve our school environment.
