Spring Parks Primary School is a dual campus, multicultural primary school in Springvale with a current enrolment of 300 students. We are proud of our school and welcome enquiries for a school tour.
Our teaching staff are supported by a significant number of education support staff including teacher aides, multicultural aides, a speech pathologist and welfare officers. Together, we work as a strong team to support the needs of our diverse community. Our community partnerships include the local Chinese School; Officeworks, who volunteer at our breakfast clubs and Ardoch, who support volunteers to work at our school, as well as investing in our robotics program. Adult English classes, computer classes and a playgroup are also conducted on our sites to further engage with the wider community.
We are implementing the Victorian Curriculum and we continue to have a focus on inquiry through our developmental approach to curriculum delivery. Our priorities include a strong emphasis on literacy and numeracy which is also reflected in our staffing allocation to support students with their learning needs. In reading and numeracy we are a high performing school, as evidenced by our 2017 and 2018 NAPLAN results. We are very proud of the way we support our students to achieve their best outcomes and this includes a proactive approach to building student leadership. Specialist classes enhance our core curriculum in visual arts, physical education and Spanish.
All school programs and interactions are underpinned by the school’s core values of Respect, Engagement, Achievement, Community and Hope. The wellbeing and safety of all children is at the forefront of all we do and every decision we make and we are committed to using a Restorative Practices approach, which focuses on developing positive relationships between students, teachers and students. We have developed a partnership with the Resilience Project which focuses on Gratitude, Empathy and Mindfulness. Our school recognises the importance of academic opportunity and excellence as a gateway to a positive future for our students and promote thinking skills and goal setting as a way of scaffolding and articulating learning.
