About Beckenham Primary School
Beckenham Primary School has been an integral part of the local community for over 100 years. The school is characterised by a diversity of cultural backgrounds amongst our student population.
Understanding and respecting difference in others underpins the school’s 6 Kinds of Best values program.
This program supports students to be;
- Kind to others
- Kind to the environment
- The Community kind
- The Achieving kind
- The Learning Kind
- Kind to themselves.
The school offers programs in physical education, visual art, kitchen / garden, and science. Chinese (Mandarin) was introduced in 2018 and will be taught in Years 3-6 by 2021.
The school actively promotes sustainability with all classrooms assigned tasks that support the reduce, re-use and recycle message. We are an accredited Waste Wise and Water Wise school. The kitchen and garden program is aligned to the national Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden program. Children learn the importance of nutrition while engaging with the plant – grow – harvest – cook cycle.
The school’s highly dedicated and professional staff are committed to educating the students in their care. As part of this commitment to our students we offer a strong student services team. This includes a School Chaplain and Student Support Worker offering pastoral care to the students. Recognising that the presence of good relationships between students and staff promotes a safe school environment, a no-blame approach is taken to conflict resolution using restorative practice techniques.
Parent participation in the school is welcomed and rewarded through the school passport incentive program. We enjoy strong support from a very active Parents and Citizen’s association providing funding for various projects around the school. Parents and community are also involved in the operation of the school through our School Board.
Beckenham Primary School has spacious grounds including an oval and several designated play areas for various year groups.
