Our school has a dedicated team of teachers who deliver a high quality education providing students with solid foundations for their secondary education and are committed to the schools motto of ‘Learning for Life’. Teachers work together in teams with a focus on providing a learning environment that has high expectations, develops the full potential of each child, and insists on continuous improvement for all students. The School Strategic Plan has a focus on students acquiring effective literacy skills, and developing a sound understanding of Maths skills and concepts. Students are actively encouraged to take responsibility for their learning and behaviour. We assist students to form friendships, seek solutions to problems and understand the importance of good citizenship.


The following values are pivotal to the life of our school and the school community -


Care and Compassion, Doing Your Best, Fair Go, Freedom, Honesty, Integrity, Respect, Responsibility, Tolerance.


These values are part of our everyday life and are parent, student and teacher alike. Pivotal within student management and instructional practice.
Findon Primary School has a commitment to building a learning community where all stakeholders are involved in the education of students. We encourage parents to take an active interest in their child’s learning and to take advantage of the numerous forums and opportunities that support this. The partnership between home and school is highly valued and underlines the importance parents have in all aspects of their child’s education.


I invite you to learn more about the innovative and stimulating learning environment at Findon Primary School via website and trust that you will discover the wonders our school has to offer.


The atmosphere of the school is supportive and friendly with students, staff and parents working together to achieve the best learning outcomes for all children in a caring environment.
