Jeparit Primary School is a small regional school on the banks of the meandering Wimmera River. We are family orientated and integrate with our local community and events. Our staff believe in developing every child to their full potential and in 2019 our students agreed 100% that we have high expectations of them for success, (ATOS Annual Survey).
Our 2019 academic results were outstanding and several students obtained scores in standardised testing indicating they were amongst the top performers in Australian schools in their subjects. Overall each year the student average results for reading and mathematics have lifted with 2019 showing our students are commensurate with Australian averages.
We deliver the Victorian Curriculum and engage in a variety of activities and excursions to enliven our students learning and pique their interest in the world around us. We have a lot to offer our students, from well planned and assessed teaching programs to annual camps, regular public music performance to complement classroom music, kayaking and swimming programs close-by in the warmer months, breakfast club and cooking programs. Jeparit Primary School has it all!
Our School operates on the philosophy that a happy, positive, caring school climate is essential in allowing children to achieve individual learning success. We believe all children can learn and develop self-confidence, self-esteem and self-discipline in a supportive environment. We work with students to create individualised programs that meet their own needs and ensure that our curriculum is engaging and purposeful.
This is more than just a statement about looking after your children, our students; it is our commitment as a school council, as staff and as a principal, to ensuring that Jeparit Primary School students are safe in our care and that we have zero tolerance for child abuse. Our child safety policies and procedures, are in place, and in line with community expectations and government requirements. You can check out our child safe policies from the menu tab above or by clicking here.
Parent and community participation is seen as an essential part of our school programs. Our School Council, made up of parents, teachers and community members, develops policies to reflect the school’s values and support our school’s future direction, as outlined in our 2019 – 2022 strategic plan. Our school council also authorises fundraising events, conducted by the parents and friends association, to support and provide assistance with beneficial school programs.
Our school is staffed by an experienced principal along with enthusiastic classroom and specialist subject teachers, who work well as a team of professionals placing student learning at the center of everything we do. Our staff care deeply about our students, both individually and as a whole and want to develop lasting relationships that are based on trust, mutual respect and hard work.
