Forest Crescent Primary School (5688)

School Overview

Forest Crescent Primary School is an Independent Public School, operating within the Government System, sitting in the locality of Forest Lakes, Thornlie. The school is a large primary school and is part of a strong community which is supportive of its strategic directions. Our vision of 'Success for All' is consistent with our belief that 'In Learning We Grow' and builds upon student, staff and parent learning as we move forward as a collective.

There is a changing demographic within our local area and the staff value the diversity of our students and the inclusive practices employed within the school.

As a school, we have high expectations of our students and staff and this is supported by our school community which takes pride in 'their' school. We are driven to do the best we can for our students; socially, emotionally and academically and we have embraced KidsMatter as a School Community, ensuring that students, staff and parents are supported.

For many years a key focus area has been the early intervention of students who are at risk, ensuring highly effective interventions in partnership with families.

Our Specialist Programs (Music, Visual Arts, LOTE and Physical Education) have been highly successful over a number of years and help to define the overall educational experience students receive by attending Forest Crescent.

Students who are gifted and talented are challenged and enriched through a variety of in class opportunities and access to Primary Extension and Academic Challenge (PEAC), TAGS Art, School of instrumental Music (SIMS) music lessons, choir and sporting opportunities. A number of students graduate from our school and go on to specialized high school programs.

In 2015 Forest Crescent Primary School won the Gosnells City Council Safe City Award in the category of Community Kids Award for the 'Engaging, Enriching Environments Project', a project focussed on environmental awareness, preservation and sustainability.
