Cooloongup Primary School (5606)

School Overview

We offer our students and the wider community a friendly, caring and welcoming learning environment. Our students see themselves as successful learners due to our staff, teaching and non-teaching, catering to the individual needs of each child. Our staff implement high quality teaching practices that ensure each student has the opportunity to continually improve academically and to develop their personal and social capabilities.

The school applies the Strategic Directions for Public Schools 2020-2024 - Every student, every classroom, every day and the ICT Vision for teaching and learning in Public Schools 2020-2024 - utilising technology to provide responsive schooling options that personalise learning to individual students, their capabilities and their aspirations.

Cooloongup Primary students benefit from a high level of pastoral care as well as the well-being initiatives used throughout the school. Students are encouraged to be a positive part of the school community by having high expectations and values for themselves and others through the whole school, social skills program of Tribes. Behavioural expectations are clear, allowing for students to be supported in making positive choices to ensure they become part of our safe, positive and productive school environment.

Exemplary teaching practices are implemented in academic and non-academic programs used throughout the school. Teachers use Co-operative Learning Strategies to ensure all students are actively engaged in their learning whilst delivering explicit instruction within the context of an inquiry based environment.
Cooloongup offers a range of specialist programs which include: DRUMBEAT - an evidence based social and emotional learning program; instrumental music lessons delivered by teachers from the School of Instrumental Music; extracurricular activities during break times; a performing arts group which culminates in a theatre event; and the Specialised Learning Program for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Cooloongup Primary School is located away from main roads in a quiet area in the City of Rockingham. Our unique location and grounds provide outdoor play spaces which are safe and inclusive whilst encouraging student exploration in both structured and free play based learning activities. Students participate in a wide range of sporting activities, both in school and at Inter-school competitions, each term.
