Location Profile

School vision

Eltham East Primary School is committed to providing a safe, nurturing and respectful environment which supports and inspires our children to be actively involved in their learning, to grow in self-awareness, resilience and social responsibility and to contribute in a positive way to the world around them.

School context

EEPS is situated in the heart of Eltham, which is located 22km from Melbourne.  It is a modern, well-resourced school nestled in a treed and sloping site. To ensure all 640 students have a high-quality education a staff of over 50 works collaboratively towards achieving our school¿s vision. We have 40 equivalent full-time staff: a newly appointed Principal, 2 Assistant Principals, 40 teachers and Education Support staff working with our students. EEPS is about our students; their learning, their welfare and their potential.

Curriculum focus

Eltham East Primary School is a high-performing school. By implementing a range of innovative approaches as well as proven teaching practices we strive to continuously improve our provision of the very best learning environment for each child.

 

Our curriculum emphasis is on literacy and numeracy and embraces rich and engaging programs in the arts, science, humanities, health, physical education, music and Japanese.

Each classroom is equipped with an interactive whiteboard, desktop/notebook computers and access to i-Pads.

With our motto of Learning and Growing Together and strong value system underpinning our behaviour, the school and the community form an interdependent partnership.

The treed and sloping site provides plenty of playing area for students.  A building/refurbishment program has seen new classrooms, administration building, resource areas and OSHC facilities.

The school has five key values that are widely recognised, used daily and displayed throughout the school. These are;

Enjoyment: thinking positively, choosing to act in a safe and friendly way, to have fun and not spoil others' fun.

Teamwork: is demonstrated when team members share the work, include everyone, contribute, take turns and act patiently.

Respect: means to be considerate and caring towards yourself, others and the environment.

Resilience: means being able to bounce back and recover quickly from everyday difficulties and challenges, thinking optimistically and being able to build positive relationships and social¿ emotional skills.

Learning: is demonstrated by trying hard and doing your best. Students use their time productively and set goals for future progress.

Sitting alongside our values are the EEPS 'Learning to Learn' dispositions;

* I am organised and use my time wisely.

* I am a creative, inquisitive and critical thinker.

* I persist with my learning even when it's difficult.

* I am confident to try new things and I am comfortable making mistakes.

* I always want to improve as a learner.

We are proud of our motto of Learning and Growing Together, which applies to all of us and is something that we embody in our teaching and leadership approach.
