Information for parents

Dream it, Be it, Climb high!

Encouraging all families to visit our school, speak with staff and become part of our community.

Welcome to West Northam Primary School

The West Northam Primary School vision for our students is Dream It, Be It, Climb High!

At West Northam Primary School our students aspire to be their best. We equip our students with the skills and ability to persevere and achieve success. We foster a sense of belonging and teach our students to care and contribute.

Our highly skilled early childhood and senior team leaders work closely with staff to ensure our teachers are using proven, effective, teaching techniques that ensure the very best in learning for your child.

To prepare your child for an increasingly technological world, we have a strong focus on the use of information and communications technology (ICT) to transform learning. Our specialist ICT teacher works closely with the classroom teachers to ensure the children receive the highest level of instruction using the very latest in technology.

Our dedicated and highly professional staff are committed to educating the children in their care with kindness and compassion. We use the highly successful Positive Behaviour Support program, with our behaviour expectations of responsibility, respect and self-control. This program focuses on moving from ‘Managing Student Behaviour’ to ‘Student Engagement’, building a sense of belonging and a positive school culture where students take responsibility for the decisions they make.

Our school has a strong focus on strengthening community partnerships. Invitations are extended to parents, friends and family members to visit the school to celebrate successes and join the children for special events. We also invite parents to join the P&C and School Council so that they can work with the school to support their children’s wellbeing and learning.

West Northam Primary School offers your child the very best education in a safe, caring and culturally inclusive environment where all students can learn and grow.
