Principals message

At Yale Primary School your child is at the center of all we do in our wonderful community. This is a place where your child will feel welcome, safe and happy while enjoying arguably the most formative years of their life.

As Principal I am very proud of the staff and students of our school for the enthusiasm and passion they display in their teaching, learning and other supporting roles.

Yale Primary School became an Independent Public School in 2019 and we are very proud of this achievement. Yale Primary School participated from 2017 to 2019 in the Fogarty Edvance Program – an innovative school leadership program.

At the centre of all we do is your child’s education and the teaching staff at Yale Primary School work diligently as a committed team to improve the education for all our students by being very inclusive of our community.

At Yale Primary School we strive for academic success, learning innovation and we believe strongly in engaging with our community. Parents are an essential part of their child’s education. This is balanced with a strong pastoral care focus. We aim to instill the importance of our core values in our students and develop personal qualities like being your best, taking responsibility, taking a compassionate and caring approach and demonstrating respect for others.

Our commitment to you and our students is reflected in our expectations for success for all.

Innovative Teaching

Teachers and education assistants at Yale Primary School are dedicated to ensuring your child receives the best possible education and the best start to their life. Children learn best when they feel safe and secure. Yale provides a caring and nurturing environment so your child can feel comfortable and confident when trying to learn new things.

Whatever your child’s learning style our teachers will take the time needed to support your child’s individual needs to ensure they learn to the best of their ability.

Excellence in Teaching and Learning

Our school has strong focus on Literacy and Numeracy, using programs like Back to Front Maths and Cambridge Math’s, Talk-for-Reading, Talk-for-Writing, Explicit Direct Instruction, Sounds Waves and Letters and Sounds in the Kindy and Pre-primary area.

In addition to these we also run a strong Humanities program and we offer a diverse range of subjects such as Instrumental Music, Science and Library studies, and Physical Education – all taught by our dedicated specialist teachers.

We have an explicit focus on building good connections with our parents who partner with us to provide the support needed for their child to succeed. We encourage active parental participation at Yale Primary School in the governance and fund raising activities at the school.

We Forward to working together.

Yours sincerely
