Greenfields Primary School (5708)

School Overview

Greenfields Primary School is a distinctive Level 5 public school located 80km south of Perth in the City of Mandurah. Our school strives to meet the needs and interests of all students and reflect the values and aspirations of our school community. Our school supports each student to take responsibility for their learning, aim for their personal best and achieve their full potential.

Our purpose is to ensure all students leave Greenfields Primary School well prepared for their secondary schooling and have opportunities to develop the skills, knowledge and confidence they need to achieve their individual potential and play an active part in civic and economic life.

Our school motto is Together We Grow because we believe every child has the right to be supported in becoming a literate, numerate and creative individual with the skills, knowledge and values to contribute positively to society. This is a guiding principle that underpins our school's operations as a professional learning community.

Our school caters for 400 students from Kindergarten to Year 6. Critical and creative thinking is valued, with Students At Educational Risk (SAER) programs complimenting class learning experiences. Highly regarded Primary Extension and Challenge (PEAC) provide enrichment for gifted and talented students, with innovative science programs providing authentic and real life learning experiences.

Our staff are student and relationship focused, motivated and work collaboratively in a team environment. We highly regard strong teaching skills in literacy, numeracy and science.

We value our parents and carers as partners and encourage a collaborative, mutually respectful learning and teaching environment.

Greenfields Primary School is held in high regard by the local and wider community due to its achievements in student learning, quality teaching by the caring and professional staff and the shared beliefs with active and supportive families.

The School Council and staff have set a vision for 2015-2019 to have successful students through processes that are intended to have maximum impact on overall school performance. The strategic direction for the school is based on our four key outcomes supporting our vision statement:
* Students who have a lifetime love of reading
* Students who apply their understanding of mathematics and technology to real world situations
* Confident, resilient students with a strong set of positive behaviour values, and
* Creative students with an understanding of environmentally conscious and sustainable living habits

Our strategic and operational plans have the capacity to be achievable, improvement focused, meet all accountability and compliance requirements and strengthen our community's confidence in the performance of Greenfields Primary School.
