We have high expectations of students, staff and families and provide quality experiences with challenging personal learning goals as well as effective feedback for our community of learners.  We continually strive to ensure high levels of literacy and numeracy which are taught explicitly as well as through transdisciplinary teaching.  At Kororoit Creek Primary School our student outcome data shows that our students perform well in relation to like and State standards and often higher than expected in comparison to students in other schools. NAPLAN data confirms these outcomes. Whilst our results are pleasing, the school has a strong commitment to on-going improved student learning outcomes and associated data across the school.
