Julie front of school

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. I hope that you will also take the time to visit our school where you will see for yourself the wonderful people that make up our school community.

Our school vision states:- As 21st Century learners, we are literate, numerate, creative and independent thinkers who make positive contributions to the global community.

During a visit to the school you will see our vision enacted through the exciting programs and activities that take place every day at Carlton Primary.

Carlton Primary School is a community united by a shared belief in the following values

  • Achievement
  • Relationships
  • Respect
  • Diversity

These values underpin the teaching and learning philosophy of our school, which recognises that every child is unique and that the educational needs of each will be different. The school’s capacity to inspire and engage each child to fulfil his or her potential is a key to the success of the school. We use a School Wide Positive Behaviours framework, which specifically targets, teaches and reinforces pro social behaviour in all aspects of learning.

We are proud to be a school that is inclusive and innovative, and a school that achieves results. The whole school community takes pride in our academic outcomes and our most recent NAPLAN results in saw our students performing extremely well. For more information on the Victorian Government School Performance Summary go to myschool.edu.au. These results are a reflection of our engaged students and hard working teachers, who together strive to ensure that each child achieves their personal best and is well prepared for their future beyond primary school.

At our most recent school review, the independent reviewer noted: “This school is well positioned to enter a new and invigorating period of performance that will result in high levels of growth in students achievement, engagement and well-being.”

We are very excited about a $10 million redevelopment which is currently in the master planning stage. By 2018 all students will be enjoying state of the art learning spaces, to match the innovative and exciting learning environment that already exists.

Welcome to Carlton Primary School!
