Croydon Primary School
Croydon Primary School’s goal is to educate the whole child, academically, socially and emotionally. Our students will be at the heart of everything we do.
Croydon Primary School is dedicated to the academic and personal growth of every student and we strive to create a stimulating and motivating environment that promotes a love of learning. We encourage every student to reach their potential by providing a range of programs designed to develop and extend their skills. Great emphasis is placed on the core foundations for learning – Literacy and Numeracy. Our aim is to challenge students to be the very best that they can be.
Established in 1888, our school is located in central Croydon on a bushland site of four hectares, within a culturally and socially diverse community. We pride ourselves on educating the whole child, engaging our students with challenging learning experiences that cater for the wide variety of individual needs and supporting them socially and emotionally to achieve their best.
We currently have ten classes with a student population of approximately 190.
Teaching teams work together at all levels of the school to plan and deliver an extensive curriculum that promotes student development. All students take part in specialist programs in the areas of Visual Arts, Performing Arts, Languages (Indonesian and German) and Physical Education. All students are extended and supported in areas of individual need.
The following values underpin all that we do as a school community: respect, responsibility and resilience. We are proud to be a lead school in the Respectful Relationships program to support the health and wellbeing of our community.
We are a learning community; large enough to offer students choice and opportunity and small enough to know and care for each individual student.
