Woodvale Primary School (5689)



School Overview



For more than 30 years, our school has been guided by our commitment to ensuring that every student is a successful, independent learner and every teacher is an excellent teacher.

We are a proud Independent Public School providing a safe, stimulating and rewarding learning environment for our Kindergarten to Year 6 students.

At Woodvale Primary School our vision is to build positive relationships, develop 21st century learners and celebrate students' progress and successes.

This shared, clear vision is reflected every day in the way staff and students interact with each other, challenge themselves to achieve continuous improvement and work in a positive environment.

Our focus on the four school values: Respect, Honesty, Responsibility and Kindness, allows us to build positive relationships and establish positive behaviours, ensuring our school is a fun, caring and positive place for learning.

We have programs in place to develop our students' social and emotional skills and their mental health. The school chaplain also plays a key role in providing pastoral care at our school.

We provide a strong foundation in literacy, numeracy and science. Our students engage in a well-rounded curriculum experience based on the Western Australian Curriculum and the Early Years Learning Framework in the early childhood years of Kindergarten to Year 2.

Our programs provide children with the opportunity to study a range of specialist subjects including music, physical education and science. Our students learn Japanese and are eligible to learn a musical instrument and participate in the school choir in upper primary.

Our highly skilled teachers engage students in learning programs that are adjusted to suit their learning needs. They provide appropriate intervention strategies for those requiring additional help, as well as challenging and stimulating programs for academically talented students. Teachers utilise visible learning strategies in their teaching to optimise their impact on student learning.

Our students learn in contemporary, well-resourced classrooms equipped with the latest in computer technology to facilitate student learning including interactive whiteboards, desktop computers, notebooks and iPads.

Our school buildings are attractive, featuring highly practical and flexible learning and teaching spaces. Complementing our general purpose classrooms is our well-appointed and resourced library; music room; purpose built science room; an enclosed under cover assembly area; as well as a canteen which is operated daily in partnership with the high school.

Our school also boasts extensive grassed play areas, hard courts for tennis, basketball and netball as well as a nature playground in our early childhood precinct, providing challenging and enjoyable activities for all students.

Our school community works together to create a school environment that reflects the best of contemporary educational practices.
