Thank you for taking the time to learn more about what we offer for students and families at Loxton Primary School.
As the local community school, we take great pride in providing high quality teaching and learning experiences for all students. We value the positive relationships we foster and build with students and families. We focus on strengths and encourage our students to be the best they can be.
Our students are supported by a Principal, a Deputy Principal, Leader of Wellbeing, Pastoral Care Worker, Classroom and Specialist Teachers in Physical Education and Health, Technologies, Science and HASS (Humanities and Social Sciences) and School Services Officers.
Our Site Improvement goals at Loxton Primary School focus on Literacy and Numeracy.
Our Literacy approach is explicit with students utilising the Big 6 of Reading skills, including oral language, phonological awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency and comprehension in an integrated approach to reading instruction. This includes students participating in systematic, synthetic phonics instruction when learning to read.
Numeracy learning includes students working through the Big Ideas in Number framework to ensure they have a conceptual development of number sense, which is fundamental to all mathematical learning.
We offer a variety of extra-curricular opportunities for students across all year levels.
Our school has excellent facilities including both a Junior Primary and Upper Primary designated playground, with a spectacular nature play, edible garden and outdoor learning area under construction, an all-weather outdoor stadium and a 5 bay kitchen. The kitchen is supplemented by a large garden and students from Year 3 participate in the program.
Our newly created Vision 'Dream Believe Learn Achieve' provides us with the 'what' we want for our students and this is clearly supported by our clear focus on our School Values, providing the 'how' we are going to achieve this. The values are embedded in everything we do. The School Values are:
Belonging, Caring, Learning, Persisting and Respecting.
