About 
Our School

Albanvale Primary School is a vibrant learning community situated in Albanvale within the Western Suburbs of Melbourne, established in 1981.  Our students from diverse backgrounds  Achieve Excellence Together through the provision of a student-centered approach to teaching and learning.  Our goal is to engage each child in a rich and innovative curriculum focusing on Literacy, Numeracy, and STEM to prepare our students with the skills needed for success now and into the future. 

All classrooms are equipped with current technology to unlock a 21st-century learning environment. Each student in the school has access to their own laptop which enables eLearning tools to be integrated across learning domains and prepares students for the real world.  The school embraces diversity recognising that students learn in different ways and provides individualised learning pathways for success. Albanvale aims for significant measurable growth in learning for each student and is strongly committed to making sure each child achieves the best possible learning outcomes. The school leaders, alongside teachers and support staff, commit to working collaboratively with a coherent and shared focus to improve student learning and wellbeing.

 

Research shows that when teachers work together in collaboration it leads to improved learning for our students. Staff at Albanvale Primary School work together in Professional Learning Teams to collectively meet the individual needs of students across the 12 multi-age classes in operation. Learning programs are planned and delivered through the work undertaken by Professional Learning Teams. 

 

A commitment to Student Wellbeing is recognised through a School-Wide Positive Behaviour approach to Welfare and Engagement supported by the Department of Education. To strengthen our practices, we have been engaged in a partnership with Real School's consultant Adam Voigt since 2018 to embed a restorative lens into our community's cultures.

 

Classroom learning programs are enhanced with the support of Enrichment classes in Physical Education, Italian, The  Arts,  STEM, and an extensive school camp, excursion, and experiences program. We hold regular whole-school events to bring our community together to celebrate and share in each student's learning experience.

 

We empower our students as the leaders of tomorrow by engaging them Young Leaders program to enhance their personal and public leadership capabilities while providing them with a sense of purpose and civic-mindedness. Students' apply their leadership capabilities to give back to the Albanvale Community through a range of opportunities within and beyond the school. Furthermore, our elected student leaders facilitate fortnightly assemblies and represent the student voice within the school through a range of projects including the Junior School Improvement Team (JSIT) which work with teachers to focus on improving teaching and learning across the school

 

At Albanvale we embrace diversity and individuality, providing each child with every opportunity for success. 

We believe that together, every student can achieve excellence.
