Welcome to Our School
Cranbourne West Primary School welcomes you to our web site. If you are reading this you are considering the school for your child to attend whether for a short period of time or for their Primary School life. You may also be looking at other schools in the area because you are not sure what school will suit you and your children better.
All state schools are great schools and really the only way you can make up your mind is to book a tour and have a look. You will know whether you like the atmosphere as you walk through.
We are fortunate because we are a well-established school and we have learnt what is important for you and your children. We live our Values of Respect, Trust, Sense of Humour, and most of all, Learning. When you enrol at our school you will be provided with lots of information around our expectations and what we do. One of the most important documents is our Values booklet because that provides you with the behaviours we expect from our school community, parents, children and staff to show at all times.
We have achieved significant student learning growth outcomes over the last five years. We expect that all children will achieve at least twelve months in their learning every year. Our teachers and support staff work really hard to make sure we maintain the growth in your children’s learning. Our results have reflected this laser like focus on your children’s learning.
Most of all though we want your children to be happy and content with their schooling because they learn so much more effectively when they like coming to school. All children learn differently. Part of the skill of our teachers is to recognise this and to tailor their teaching style to maximise your child’s learning. This is the reason why we spend time with you and your family to find out about your child while you are enrolling. In this way we are well prepared to ensure your child has a great start to their time at Cranbourne West Primary School.
Plans, Reports & Policies
Child Safety Standards
Victoria has introduced compulsory minimum standards for organisations that provide services for children to help protect children from abuse.
The Child Safe Standards form part of the Victorian Government’s response to the Betrayal of Trust Inquiry (the 2013 Parliamentary Inquiry into the Handling of Child Abuse by Religious and Other Non-Government Organisations).
Education, awareness raising and helping organisations to create and maintain child safe environments will be the initial focus of the Child Safe Standards.
As part of the Victorian Government’s commitment to implementing the recommendations of the Betrayal of Trust report, which found that more must be done to prevent and respond to child abuse in our community, there is a new regulatory landscape surrounding child safety, underpinned by the new PROTECT Child Safe Standards.
The Child Safe Standards are compulsory minimum standards for all Victorian early childhood services and schools, to ensure they are well prepared to protect children from abuse and neglect.
