North Tom Price is a wonderful school community as students, staff and parents work together to create a safe and inclusive learning environment for all students to thrive. Our school has earned a positive reputation for the safe and nurturing environment we provide, and has a strong ethos of being a warm, caring and friendly community where every child is treated as a valued individual.

We promote enjoyment of learning to strive for academic excellence and develop positive social skills. We foster a positive and collaborative working relationship between parents, staff and students and 'together we strive' to achieve the best possible outcomes for each child.

We have a strong focus on literacy and numeracy and offer a diverse range of subjects including science, the arts and physical education. Our students in years three to five are taught Chinese Mandarin. Our staff work hard to provide challenging and motivating programs and are committed to meeting the needs of students as individuals and as members of the community.

As an Independent Public School since 2013, North Tom Price values close relationships with the parent community, our school board and also our proactive P&C. Our continual community focus is an integral part of our current business plan and reflected in our school motto to 'Strive for Excellence.'

We are continuing to develop our strong relationships with our traditional owners and have partnerships with the Graeme (Polly) Farmer Foundation and the Aboriginal Biodiversity Conservation to support our Aboriginal students.

We promote a strong virtues program which teaches students key values that are reinforced with our student leaders and in all classrooms. We are proud of our transition to kindergarten program and a vacation program which we operate in in partnership with the local not for profit organisation Nintirri.

North Tom Price Primary School is part of an Ashburton Schools Alliance whereby neighbouring schools work together in common areas to support student learning, staff development and share resources where appropriate.

Our beautifully maintained and attractive school is accessible to families. We have excellent facilities including access to playing fields, two undercover areas, a modern library, a science and art room, two computer laboratories, iPads, laptops and interactive whiteboards for student use.
