West Greenwood Primary School (5600)

School Overview

Our school builds its culture around the four Whole School values of Resilience, Respect, Responsibility and Doing Your Best.

We are a proud Independent Public School with a rich 40-year history of providing successful education. We currently cater to 480 Kindergarten to Year 6 students taught by well-qualified, experienced and dedicated teachers working in partnership with parents to ensure the needs of every child are met.

We take pride in the care we take for our students, our quality learning opportunities and our openness to new ideas and new people.

Our school offers specialist teaching programs in Music, Japanese, Science and Physical Education. Our students have access to a range of technologies, inclusive of desktop computers, laptops, iPads and robotics/coding equipment. Our staff are committed to providing relevant and engaging learning experiences and all teaching staff belong to one of four committees responsible for driving literacy, numeracy, ICT and student health and wellbeing.

Support staff - including education assistants, a chaplain and a school psychologist - work to ensure all students' needs are met. In addition to this, the school has forged strong partnerships with Edith Cowan University, which provides speech pathology students to work at the school, the School of Educational Needs - Disability and the West Coast Language Development Centre.

Our school features a friendly and dedicated Parent and Citizens' Association (P&C) which meets twice a term. P&C projects continue to support the school's funding and planning by providing extra playground facilities, managing the canteen, promoting and running the school uniform shop, providing additional funding for various learning areas.

Our School Board is well informed on current teaching practices, student achievement and supports the work of teaching and support staff. The board monitors the school's business plan and assists in reviewing and updating school policies. Our school underwent a very successful Independent Public School Review in 2017 and is currently implementing its new Business Plan 2018-2020.

Strong external partnerships exist at the school, with an Out of School Care facility operating five days a week and school holiday periods, an after school Young Engineering Club operating once a week, multiple sporting clinics operating before and after school and Greenwood College providing multiple transition activities for students in Years 5 and 6.
