Leda Primary School (5725)

School Overview

Leda Primary School was established in 1992 and is located in Leda, a suburb of Kwinana, approximately 40 kilometres south of Perth. The school became an Independent Public School (IPS) in 2014, allowing for more autonomy and the establishment of a School Board to represent the community and oversee the Governance of the school. Our school maintains strong links to Leda Education Support Centre which is situated onsite and caters for students with special needs.

The school caters for students from Kindergarten to Year Six. There is a purpose built Early Learning Centre (Kindergarten and Pre-Primary) and playground which includes an interactive nature play concept. Our school learning environment is guided by the National Quality Standards (NQS), Be You and Positive Behaviour Schools (PBS) programs. Implementation of the Aboriginal Cultural Framework supports us to recognise the fundamental role that education plays in building a society that is 'cohesive and culturally diverse, and that values Australia's Indigenous cultures.'

Academic achievement is fostered by a whole school focus on learning priorities, classroom practice and Pastoral care. Differentiated learning across the curriculum is emphasised and includes specialist teachers in Technologies, Science, Sport, Languages (Italian), Dance & Drama and Music.

The school's inclusive and safe learning environment focuses on building partnerships and relationships amongst all stakeholders and we value engaging with our families and broader community to build a shared commitment to our students. Students at Leda Primary School are encouraged and supported to develop confidence in their own abilities and to become creative thinkers and inquiry learners.

The school vision states we are 'A collaborative community where all are valued, supported and challenged to achieve success.' Our purpose is to ensure that all students at Leda Primary School develop the understandings, skills and attitudes relevant to individual needs, thereby enabling them to realise their full potential.
