On behalf of our school community, I would like to warmly welcome you to Clyde Primary School. Our school was established on its current site in 1910, and is located in the growing community of Clyde in the City of Casey. The school is 5 kilometres east of Cranbourne and 10 kilometres south of Berwick. Clyde Primary School is growing quickly with our numbers currently sitting around 540 students, with continued substantial growth over the next few years.
The school facilities are being re-developed and modernised from 2021, with considerable planning and design stages occurring throughout 2020. Works will include 11 new general learning areas, specialist art, STEM and music areas as well as a full-size gymnasium with a competition-grade basketball court. There will also be refurbishment to our school’s existing buildings to provide a new library and staff work areas.
Our school’s vision is to build a collaborative learning community that supports independence and motivates students to succeed.
Our values of Respect, Responsibility and Resilience provide the core for everything we do at Clyde PS. We support and encourage students to achieve their personal best both academically and socially.
Teachers and Education Support staff work collaboratively in Professional Learning Teams, planning for students collectively, based on their individual needs. Teaching is explicit and targeted to ensure the learning goals of all students are met. The focus for all staff is on continued learning to improve knowledge and skill, content rigor and relevance and student engagement, knowing that this in turn improves learning outcomes for our students.
The Clyde PS motto of ‘Shared Learning’ is clearly visible and actioned every day. The goal of our caring and nurturing staff is to develop an intrinsic motivation in students to want to learn, ensure they keep their curiosity and become respectful, knowledgeable, open minded, empathetic, global citizens who are able to problem solve and use technologies.
We look forward to working with you in 2021,
