Confident, Independent Learners
Teaching programs are designed to equip all students with the skills and knowledge to become confident, independent learners. A strong focus on literacy and numeracy along with opportunities for the academically talented, results in excellent progress and achievement. The school’s NAPLAN results are consistently well above like state and Australian averages. Many year 5 and 6 students benefit from external Primary Extension and Challenge (PEAC) programs which are supplemented by an enriched curriculum supported by digital and cooperative learning.
Innovative and Engaging Curriculum - "The Churchlands Way"
Teachers at CPS deliver innovative, diverse, challenging and differentiated curriculum across the school through evidence based instructional strategies and skills. Our learning program provides opportunities for our students to achieve their individual best in all areas of development. We cater for students in a variety of ways and focus on providing a curriculum that supports independent and inquiry learning and for students to be resilient and critical thinkers.
CPS celebrates its culturally diverse community. A significant number of students speak English as an Additional Language/Dialect (EAL/D) and they are supported by a qualified specialist teacher to effectively access the Western Australian curriculum. We believe that every child has the right to feel safe and supported in a secure, well maintained learning environment. The Bounceback program focuses students on building a strong and resilient community, ensuring the expectations of school community are upheld and recognising and rewarding them for their efforts.
Vibrant Specialists Arts Program
The school’s vibrant specialist Arts program includes; music, visual arts and drama. Instrumental music tuition for piano, clarinet, violin, cello and double base. The school choir ‘VOICE’, band ‘HOTNOTES’ and the string ensemble perform regularly at school assemblies and at external events. Students also engage in 120 minutes physical education per week and French is taught to year 3s as a second language.
Technology & S.T.E.A.M
At Churchlands Primary School we have set our sights on becoming a regional leader in offering digitally leveraged learning across all curriculum areas as well as provide authentic and diverse experiences that allow our students to explore, learn and create while learning the new WA Digital Technologies Curriculum. Our students are well equipped with skills and knowledge that help them not only adapt to their future professional roles, but to thrive in their ever changing environment.
