School Overview


LEDA PRIMARY SCHOOL

BACKGROUND AND CONTEXT

Leda Primary School was established in 1992 and is located in Leda, a suburb of Kwinana, approximately 40 kilometres south of Perth. The school caters for students from Kindergarten to Year Six and the schools population is approximately 560 students. Our purpose built Early Learning Centre (Kindergarten and Pre-Primary) is working towards the National Quality Standards (K-Year2). Our school maintains strong links to Leda Education Support Centre which is situated onsite and caters for students with special needs.

The school's inclusive and safe learning environment focuses on building relationships through our School Chaplain, Pastoral Care program and Kids Matter program, and developing individual potential through excellence in education. In 2016 we are continuing to work towards becoming a Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) school.

Academic achievement is fostered by a whole school focus on Numeracy, Literacy and Science and supported by specialist teachers in these fields. To emphasise differentiated learning across the curriculum, Leda also boasts specialist teachers in Sport, Dance & Drama and Music. The schools co-curricular programmes include our established and award winning choir.

Students at Leda Primary School are encouraged and supported to develop confidence in their own abilities and to become creative thinkers and inquiry learners.
