The School Council and the Parents and Friends Group, work harmoniously with the school community to continue to improve our student's quality of education.
Eastbourne Primary School is proud that our students are performing at or above the predicted range in student learning across the curriculum.
The school is committed to child safety. We want children to be safe, happy and empowered. We support and respect all children, as well as our staff and volunteers.
We have zero tolerance of child abuse, and all allegations and safety concerns will be treated very seriously and consistently. We have specific policies, procedures and training in place that support our leadership team, staff and volunteers to achieve these commitments.
We have legal and moral obligations to contact authorities when we are worried about a child’s safety, which we follow rigorously.
Eastbourne Primary School has a clearly outlined whole school student management process based on consistency, strong teacher/student relationships and a developing Restorative Practices model.
We continue to make sound progress with the students in the Program for Students with Disabilities through our strong partnership with parents and our term meetings.
The 'You Can Do It" program has been in operation for over 10 years. It provides a foundation for good work habits, sound organisation skills and expectation of behaviour for all students.
This program and many others underpin the stimulating and nurturing environment our school community provides.
Student input into decision making is strongly supported by fortnightly student leadership meetings and participation of students on our School Council.
Student wellbeing and engagement will also be further supported through our:
*Healthy lifestyles focus
*Strong links with community organisations
Eastbourne Primary School provides all our students with sound transitional programs based on excellent rapport and communication with surrounding preschools and secondary colleges.
Our Foundation transition program involves a 16 week induction to prepare students for their first year of school.
We also offer an excellent transition program throughout the school during the year for all year levels with our 'Buddies' and our Multi -aged Days.
