Our 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.
Clyde Primary School, established on its current site in 1910, is located in the small community of Clyde in the City of Casey. The school is 5 kilometres east of Cranbourne and 10 kilometres south of Berwick. The physical environment of the school has much to offer with mature trees, a large oval and adjacent farmland giving the school a rural feel.
Clyde Primary School is growing quickly with our numbers currently sitting around 460 students, with continued substantial growth over the next few years. Teachers and Education Support staff work collaboratively in Professional Learning Teams: Foundation, Junior, Middle and Senior School, 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 school is made up of a BER building where our 5 Foundation classes are located, a Junior Wing and 2 Mod 5 portable buildings to house our Junior school consisting of 6 x Year 1 / 2 classes, a Mod 5, building and class space in the main building where our Middle school of 6 x 3 / 4 classes are located, and 2 Mod 5 portable buildings to house our Senior school consisting of 4 x 5 / 6 classes. Library, Art, Music, P.E and STEM have their own learning spaces.
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.

The 3-hectare school site has an oval, and cricket nets on the western side of our school, with all buildings on the eastern side. The school has both a junior and senior school playground. The grounds are extensively landscaped with many mature trees. The gardens are maintained by the school community, school handyman and ancillary staff.
Clyde Primary is committed to the use of ICT throughout the school ensuring students have up to date technology at their disposal. Each classroom has an Interactive Whiteboard and there are numerous class sets of Notebook Laptops and IPads for the students to use. Clyde Primary School runs a very successful Laptop Program in the 5/6 Area where students are permitted to bring their own device or parents can take up a leasing option over the final 2 years of schooling. The school is also committed to investing additional funding into a technician to facilitate this program. ICT infrastructure is updated yearly as the school grows, allowing internet speed to work at its optimum.
