A Message from the Principal

Hampton Park Primary School’s motto of Persistence, Creativity, Excellence underpins our goal of developing a learning environment where students persist in all things and develop a creative approach to learning in their search for excellence.

Our school leadership teamEvery member of staff aims to create an environment where students learn to be flexible, reflective and open minded so they will develop into capable young people with the ability to monitor their own learning and effectively manage challenges as they arise.

At Hampton Park Primary School we pride ourselves on knowing our students well and targeting their learning to suit their individual learning needs.  Each student has an individual learning plan which is reviewed and updated throughout the year as each goal is reached.

At Hampton Park Primary School, we place great importance on students developing high level literacy and numeracy skills.
All Grade 1 to 4 students participate in the Reading Room program which provides intensive literacy support for each class when they participate in a 50 minute session of literacy tutoring each day of the week.  Students in each class group are divided into small groups to work with a member of staff to target their individual literacy needs.

Prep students participate in our Oral Language Program which is led by our on staff Speech Pathologist, This ensures our youngest students have the skills necessary to become proficient readers as they move through the school.

I truly believe that the solid grounding the Prep to Grade 4 students receive in literacy and numeracy will allow them to be more successful learners in Grades 5 and 6 as they begin their academic preparation for secondary school.

The school also places a strong emphasis on the teaching of STEM -Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. We know that understanding in these areas builds creativity and provides our students with every opportunity to move with the times. In 2018 we moved into our new Science and Technology facilities as well as 8 new classrooms.  These state of the art facilities will provide our science and technology classes with specialised learning spaces that will enhance our wonderful STEM programs which are currently offered to every student.

We began implementing the KidsMatter Program in our school community in 2014 as we believe that promoting positive mental health and wellbeing will provide our students with the best possible chance of happiness and success.  This highly regarded mental health and wellbeing framework has been enhanced by the introduction of Bounce Back – a Social and Emotional Learning Program which equips students with the skills and knowledge to understand and manage adversity and improve their resilience and sense of wellbeing.

I know we will continue to see our students, families and staff benefiting greatly from working together as a school community to care for and support each other.  The school values of Respect, Cooperation, Friendliness, Equality and Best Effort ensure that every member of our culturally diverse school community is valued for who they are and encouraged to always strive for excellence.

Please come and visit our school.  I feel sure you will love it as much as I do!
