Heatherhill Primary School is a great school in which children experience
an environment in which they learn and grow.
At Heatherhill we encourage a strong sense of community about the school.
Parent input is highly valued and a wide variety of opportunities exist
for parents to take an active part in the life of the school.
The school is committed to the development of the whole child academically,
physically, socially and emotionally. Curriculum programs are designed
to interest and stimulate students while providing depth and breadth.
There is a major focus on the development of literacy and numeracy throughout
the whole school.
Our core beliefs are:
- All members of the diverse school community are treated with respect
and positive relationships are sustained. Students feel safe and cared
for and therefore, are better able to take advantage of all educational
opportunities provided for them.
- There are high expectations for student achievement. The school
implements the priorities of the Victorian education system, emphasising
the importance of providing all students with strong foundations in
literacy and numeracy learning. Provision is made for intervention
and enhancement in English and Mathematics. The curriculum is engaging
and stimulating and is delivered through high quality planning, implementation
- Students receive excellent instruction - a program that includes
high quality, explicit and effective teaching, based on sound methodologies
and research, catering for groups and individuals. The development
of Personal and Interpersonal Learning utilising Inquiry, Thinking

be well equipped for their futures.
- All staff members understand and fulfil their professional responsibilities
and cooperate and collaborate to address student learning needs. Staff
members seek opportunities to enhance their own pedagogical growth
through professional learning that is aligned with school goals.
