Welcome to Elizabeth South Primary School
Elizabeth South Primary School was the first school established in Elizabeth. The current enrolment is 220, with eight mainstream classes and two special classes. Students moving to and from the school is mainly due to many families experiencing the effects of long-term disadvantage and unemployment.
In 2008 a vision that states 'We are a collaborative learning community in an
environment that contributes to learners' resilience, positive relationships,
learning skills and high aspirations' was established. Respect, teamwork,
diversity and challenge are the school's values. These influence expectations,
class practice and decision-making. In 2009 work
with other sites on targeted curriculum initiatives included 'Teaching for Effective Learning', 'Big Ideas in Number' and 'Supporting Improved Literacy Achievement'.
Skills and values for social living and the 'Child Protection
Curriculum' are an integral
aspect of the curriculum and work of staff. The 'Friendly Schools and Families' framework
is being implemented. The site improvement plan priorities are literacy, numeracy and pedagogy for engagement with agreement that achievement of targets is the shared responsibility of all.
