We are very happy to welcome you to Glenfield Primary School and we hope your association with us is an enjoyable and rewarding one.
We foster the development of lifelong, independent learning skills and expect our students to become proficient in taking responsibility for their own learning through a process of inquiry. Everyone is a learner.
The teachers at GPS are committed to providing the best learning opportunities for your child. The school strives to achieve high levels of academic success especially in the key focus areas of literacy and numeracy.
Our children come from an extremely diverse range of cultural backgrounds and we value this diversity. We are able to offer the experience of being involved in a variety of cultural and sporting groups and are proud of our students’ achievements in these areas.
We welcome you at our school at any time. We hope you will become fully involved in our school community and in the learning journey of your child.
We believe that student wellbeing is vital to successful outcomes. To achieve this, we will cultivate a safe, supportive learning environment where students are provided with the tools to achieve their maximum potential.
Student inquiry helps students build responsibility as a learner. They develop the ability to ask questions, gather and analyse information and learn to learn. Inquiry provides students with the opportunity to tackle real world questions and problems in authentic contexts at both local and global levels.
We understand the every individual is unique and we recognise individual differences. This diversity brings a wealth of new ideas and experiences and we value the ability of people to learn from each other and treat each other with respect.
All students within our school have access to a vast array of school owned and managed devices. With a 1:1 ratio of Chromebooks/laptops across the senior classes and a 1:2 ratio of Ipads across the remainder of the school, we have the ability to seamlessly integrate technology across the curriculum.
CELEBRATE OUR SUCCESS
Glenfield Primary School is a well-established school with strong community engagement. Consultation and information communication evenings are calendared each year depending on the current focus and provide our community with programme direction and reports on student achievement. We have open and collaborative learning environments that welcome community involvement. We encourage strong learning, focused links with families and welcome regular feedback.
