Beaumaris Primary School (5720)

School Overview

Our school is located in Ocean Reef, a suburban coastal estate, approximately 30 kilometres north of Perth and 4 kilometres south-west of Joondalup. Beaumaris is a relatively affluent area, with a socially mobile population that includes many immigrants from the UK, Asia and South Africa who have reinvested their wealth for a preferred lifestyle by the sea. The community supports several local schools including government and non-government sectors. Parents are generally well off business people and local industry workers. Our families are actively involved in school activities that promote positive outcomes for children.

We are an Independent Public School and draw the bulk of our student population from within the surrounding Beaumaris, Ocean Reef, Iluka and Burns Beach Suburbs. Our school was established in 1991 and provides educational facilities for Years K- 6 (children aged 4 - 12 years). Important features of Beaumaris include its comprehensive specialist subjects program, consistent whole school approaches in core subject areas and pastoral care, and our student leadership development program.

Effective curriculum planning and a distributed leadership model provides the basis for quality instruction guided by the Western Australian Curriculum. Strong instructional leadership with a focus on school wide pedagogy, whole-of-school literacy, science and numeracy and knowledge of best practice leads to the achievement of exciting and dynamic curriculum delivery. A high priority is placed on maximizing student engagement and celebrating their successes and achievements.

Our focus is on child engagement and wellbeing so that they feel valued at all times. We measure effectiveness through the achievement and character of our students and the integral part our school plays in the community.

Beaumaris provides endless opportunity for our students to experience variety and success.
