Tuart Forest Primary School (5831)

School Overview

Tuart Forest Primary School opened in 2013 and is located on Crystal Bend Dalyellup, approximately 180kms south west of Perth. Tuart Forest Primary School caters for students from Kindergarten to Year Six.

Specialist programs at the school include Physical Education, Music, Science and Chinese (Mandarin) language. These programs will be offered from Pre-Primary to year 6 and will allow students to experience a varied curriculum from an early age. Key curriculum areas such as English and Mathematics will be taught in a coordinated way with whole school approaches, designed to meet the individual needs of students.

Your children will be taught by staff who have been selected on merit to teach at the school. We pride ourselves on employing high quality teachers and support staff. We believe that the quality of the staff directly impacts upon the quality of the learning. For that reason we have articulated our expectations about the values and actions we uphold.

Tuart Forest Primary School provides students with outstanding facilities, designed to develop bright young minds. Our environment has been carefully considered to promote inquisitiveness, curiosity and creativity. From the classrooms to the playground, from the library to the sporting facilities - Tuart Forest is a place where students can learn and play with confidence. Located in the Shire of Capel, our students will have access to the Shire's playing fields during play time and lessons and then have easy access to after school sports practice. The school promotes the use of its facilities by community groups as we believe this supports families and promotes a balanced, healthy lifestyle. We also offer before and after school care on school grounds. This service is provided by OSH Club. A Breakfast Club is also offered 2 days a week and is expected to grow over time.

As part of the Dalyellup Cluster of Independent Schools - Tuart Forest Primary School is committed to ensuring we work in harmony with other cluster schools. Sharing expertise between the schools, having common technology platforms and common language programs are some of the ways we will achieve this. Our students can expect the transition to high school will be orderly and as stress free as possible.

The use of an onsite community garden will provide great opportunities for students to learn about living a sustainable lifestyle. Students will have access to the garden to grow different crops and learn the techniques required to successfully manage a garden environment. This will also help to develop students' school pride and school identity.
