Welcome

Strathfieldsaye Primary School.

Our School community believes that the success of each child is the result of a partnership between students, staff, parents and the local community, all working together to provide appropriate and challenging learning experiences to ensure all children realise their potential. We offer a high quality program with a strong focus on Literacy and Numeracy as a basis for student learning.

The School has an underlying philosophy of providing a caring and supportive environment in which children are actively encouraged to learn and grow in self-confidence and esteem.

Our student Code of Conduct reflects this same philosophy, embracing the necessity to balance the rights of children with their responsibility for the care of others and the development of the qualities of a good citizen.
