Newbury Primary School is a place where all members of the school community feel welcome, safe and appreciated. We endeavour to create an educationally stimulating, safe, secure, calm and nurturing learning environment where student wellbeing and achievement are closely monitored.
Newbury Primary School is a Prep-6 school located at the intersection of Newbury and Grand Boulevard Craigieburn. Newbury Primary School is a holistic learning community that will provide exceptional teaching and learning experiences. The teaching areas are divided with quieter small group spaces that complement the connectedness of the classrooms. Flexibility is created through the offering of a variety of diverse spaces, including small group, whole group and areas for individual instruction to better cater to the individual needs of students.
The teaching and learning programs are intellectually challenging, engaging, fosters creativity, reflect 21st century designs and has a strong focus on literacy and numeracy. The school provides academic rigour and has high expectations of all members of the school community, both in academic pursuits and social behaviour.
We value respect, integrity, effort and community and use these values to define all work that we do.
Wellbeing programs and social skills are incorporated into everyday practice to reflect the school’s holistic approach to learning.
All teaching and support staff work collaboratively and be committed to having a shared responsibility for the emotional, social and academic development of every student. Strong, quality relationships provide a safe, secure and stimulating learning environment where opinions are valued and feedback is provided on a regular basis.
Our contemporary buildings consist of 16 general teaching and learning spaces, a Specialist Centre including a library, science and art zone, gymnasium, performing arts/music room as well as two brand new relocatables. Teachers work together to plan and teach an inclusive curriculum and to provide relevant and engaging learning experiences for all students.
The Victorian Curriculum forms the basis for planning design and implementation. Specialist programs offered include Health and Physical Education, The Arts and Science.
The wellbeing of our students and staff is of paramount importance to us. We have access to a high calibre Regional Student Wellbeing Team, including speech therapists, occupational therapists, social workers and counsellors who are able to provide support and guidance for our students, staff and families.
The underlying philosophy of the school is to provide a dynamic learning community where all students are empowered to learn and achieve personal success. Parents/carers, students and staff are strongly encouraged to work together to ensure that our students feel empowered and supported.
