Principal’s Message

The wellbeing and learning of students is at the centre of everything we do at Stanmore Public School. Our dedicated teachers and support staff form positive partnerships with parents, carers and community members to further the achievement and success of the students in our care. Our school is committed to a holistic approach to education, with academic, creative, social-emotional and physical learning all given priority in our broad range of programs and co-curricular opportunities.

We also recognise the importance of developing a strong base of skills in literacy and numeracy in our students, to ensure their future success as learners and citizens. Teachers differentiate the curriculum to meet all learners at their point of need, and students with a range of additional learning and wellbeing needs are supported in the classroom and the playground to reach their full developmental potential. Regular, targeted teacher professional learning and collaborative planning results in consistency of teacher practice and judgement across classes.

Positive student and staff wellbeing underpin the successful learning culture that exists at Stanmore PS. This creates a friendly, inclusive atmosphere, with our school values of Respect, Resilience and Responsibility evident in the actions and words of our staff members, students and school community. The school has a strong commitment to promoting sustainable practices, environmental awareness and healthy lifestyles in our community.

Students’ learning across the curriculum is enhanced by high quality specialist teaching in music, drama and languages and physical education as part of class programs. Stanmore PS is an exemplary member of the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program, with students in Years 3-6 participating in fortnightly gardening and cooking lessons. The school also offers a wide range of co-curricular programs in performing arts, sport and chess. An onsite Out of School Hours care service works closely with the school to meet the needs of the school community.

Welcome to Stanmore Public School. We look forward to sharing your child’s learning journey with you.
