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.

It gives me great delight to introduce our school to you. We have a wonderful setting, facilities and most importantly fantastic teachers and education support staff who support the students in their learning across the school.

We are a state government school that caters for students from prep to grade six.

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 in 2017, the independent reviewer noted: “ The school presented as a welcoming learning environment, all staff valuing a richly diverse student body.” There has been a desire to build community ownership and commitment to the vision, purpose, and values of the school. Communication between parents and staff has increased in strength, parents feeling increasingly valued as partners in their child’s learning at Carlton PS.”

”Carlton PS 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 wellbeing over the next four years.”

We are very excited about a $15 million redevelopment which is currently in the building stage. The new Carton Learning Precinct will incorporate a community hub and early learning centre as well as our school. By 2019 all students will be enjoying state of the art learning spaces, to match the innovative and exciting learning environment that already exists. The redeveloped building and flexible learning space will ensure our students learn to work in a variety of ways and leave school well prepared for secondary school and beyond.

Welcome to Carlton Primary School!
