Clifton Hills Primary School (5550)

School Overview


Clifton Hills Independent Public School was first opened in 1972 and is located on the slopes of the Darling Escarpment, approximately 25km South East of Perth.

Our school vision and commitment is to provide the best possible education for our students, encouraging them to achieve academic excellence and become responsible citizens, with a strong focus on providing an education that caters for the requirements of each individual child.
We pride ourselves on providing an inclusive learning environment that caters for the diversity of the students in our care and the partnerships formed support our achieving this objective.

We have always operated under the belief that strong links between parents and the wider community will support students and school improvement. Since becoming an Independent Public School in 2011, we have achieved greater flexibility to accommodate the needs of our ever changing community.

Our excellent reputation rests in our strong sense of partnership with the parents and community, the values we celebrate, our commitment to realising the potential of all students and the provision of a balanced education that addresses the academic, social, emotional and physical aspects of our students' lives.

Our professional staff delivers a broad and challenging curriculum offering opportunities for students to explore and develop their talents whilst acknowledging they all learn at different rates and in different ways. We work together, adopting an inclusive whole school approach where all are accountable and responsible for the growth and development of every child, providing opportunities for them to learn to their best potential.

At Clifton Hills we are committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment, with established processes, procedures and structures that create a school community where all stakeholders share and are a part of the education of the whole child. Our Student Services team comprises the Student Services Deputy Principal, School Psychologist, SAER (Students at Educational Risk) Coordinator, the Chaplain and the Principal.

Our student results compare favourably with like schools. Teachers work to develop curriculum and instructional strategies to develop the skills of all students. Student learning is enriched by specialist programs in performing arts, visual arts, physical education and Japanese language programs.
To support the development of the whole child we provide a number of extra-curricular programs, including Animal Warriors, Peer Mediators, Senior Choir, Junior Choir, Numero Club and Science 'Lab Rats'.

Clifton Hills supports and promotes the appropriate use of technology in school to prepare students to learn, train and live in a digital world. Students have appropriate access to Internet, programs and apps via a bank of desktops and iPads, interactive whiteboards /Smart Boards and printers.

A key link with the school is the School Board, which contributes significantly to school decision-making. Our Parents and Citizens Association is an active organisation which has provided ongoing support for the school.

Our site includes a purpose built Early Childhood Centre and well maintained grounds. We have a Nature Play area and a wonderful vegetable garden in the Early Childhood area of our school.

We invite you and your family to become part of our dynamic Clifton Hills learning community, where we live in harmony, care for others, have high expectations and Advance in Knowledge. In partnership together, we can help your child to reach their individual potential.
