About Our School
Barwon Heads Primary School continues to serve the needs of the Barwon Heads Community as it has for over 125 years. Enrolments are expected to exceed 480 in the next few years before declining and stabilizing due to the finite growth potential of the town and the reluctance of current residents to consider relocation due to their appreciation for the local environment and community. The staff are fully committed to the development of the learner and themselves through a focus on Professional Learning and whole school improvement. Specialist Programs supporting the Victorian Curriculum include Arts/Craft, Physical Education, Reading Recovery, LOTE: Indonesian, Science and Library. The school has excellent facilities with extensive grounds that provide flexibility for students to achieve their academic and social goals. All areas are resourced with current technology to support student learning for the 21st century. The school receives unprecedented support from the local community.
High levels of parent involvement in extra curricula activities, school events and school assemblies are consistently enjoyed and acknowledged. The focus of our strategic plan will be to continue our excellent results in literacy and numeracy and further develop and engage students in programs that maximise their potential. Sustainability and care for our environment are key factors in our future programs, along with our continued commitment to high quality ICT. Our Positive Education Model which focuses on Character Strengths and enabling student to flourish ensures the well being of our school community.
School Policies are available at the office on request.
