Established in 1981 the school has a current enrolment of 275 students from Prep to Year 6. Our students from diverse backgrounds are Achieving Excellence Together through the provision of a student centred approach to teaching and learning. Our goal is to engage each child in a rich and innovative curriculum focusing on Literacy, Numeracy and Multiliteracies to prepare our students with the skills needed success in the future.
All classrooms are equipped with current Audio/Visual Technology to support a 21st-century learning environment.

The school embraces diversity recognising that students learn in different ways and provides diverse 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 together collaboratively with a coherent and shared focus to improve student learning.
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. Research shows that when teachers work together in collaboration it leads to improved learning for our students.
A commitment to Student Wellbeing is recognised through a School-Wide Positive Behaviour approach to Welfare and Discipline supported by Department of Education and Training. To strengthen our practices, we have been engaged in a partnership with Real School's consultant Adam Voigt since 2018 to embed restorative lens into our communities cultures. Classroom programs are enhanced with the support of Enrichment classes in Physical Education, LOTE - Italian, The Art and STEM.
