Canning Vale Primary School is a vibrant school located in the heart of the Livingston, Waratah and Caladenia Estates. We have a very welcoming atmosphere with courtesy and mutual respect demonstrated by students and staff.
We warmly welcome parents into our school as authentic partners and encouraged to play an active role in their child's educational journey. The school's sense of tradition is embedded in our strong community culture and its values of pride, respect and excellence are clearly communicated by all members including students, staff and parents.
Our staff are professional and dedicated. They are committed to provide the best possible educational environment for each student supporting their academic, physical, social and creative skills. Teachers select tools and resources that are reflective of best practice and provide students with a range of opportunities to become successful learners. Classroom teachers and education assistants are supported by specialist teachers (visual arts, music, physical education and language - Italian).
We are committed to providing a healthy and safe learning environment. Appropriate behaviour is a top priority at Canning Vale Primary School and there is consistent behaviour management across the campus. We believe teachers have the right to teach and students have the right to learn. Classroom and playground rules exist to protect these rights and ensure everyone's safety.
We encourage students to demonstrate active citizenship through the behaviour and practices both within and outside the school environment. Our focus is towards others rather than self-interest. We promote strategies that lead to the development of resilience and leadership traits. We have a strong protective behaviours philosophy running right through the school and explicitly teach these vital skills to our students.
Canning Vale Primary School students learn tolerance, empathy and understanding first hand because we share the campus with an Education Support Centre. Students attending the Centre integrate into the primary school for activities whenever appropriate. The school is also wonderfully multi-cultural and staff create rich learning programs that allow students and staff to share experiences and knowledge.
As an Independent Public School since 2012, we work closely and in partnership with our community, in particular the School Board and the Parents and Citizens Association (P&C). Together we strive to enhance the school environment to meet the current and future needs of our students and staff. At our school, every person is guided to show pride and respect and constantly strive for excellence.
