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. Clifton Hills has always operated under the belief that strong links between parents and the wider community 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.
Clifton Hills Independent Public School provides a place where students have access to evidence based, innovative programs. 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 stake holders share and are a part of the education of the whole child. Information is shared with the community via a variety of means including a fortnightly newsletter; assemblies, email, parent centre and our TiqBiz App.
Our Student Services team comprises of the Student Services Deputy Principal, School Psychologist, SAER (Students at Educational Risk) Coordinator and the Principal. In term three our team will be joined by our Chaplain.
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 the vibrant music, visual arts, physical education and Japanese programs that offer our students access to specialist knowledge.
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. Equitable access to educational materials through technology is provided in the classrooms for all students to learn through the Internet, programs and apps via a bank of desktops and iPads, interactive whiteboards /Smart Boards and printers. Other available technologies include digital cameras, and laptops to complement their learning. We use technology to enable students to have access to educational materials even when they're not in class or at school. Programs such as Mathletics and Reading Eggs (kindly supported by our P&C) assist students learning at home and school.
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. The school canteen is also very successful and provides a range of healthy and delicious food products.
Our site provides the students with a new Early Childhood Centre and well maintained grounds. We have commenced the building of a Nature Play area and have 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,
