Welcome to Bradshaw Primary School, and thank you for considering Bradshaw for your child’s education. We trust that your time spent at Bradshaw will be personally satisfying and rewarding. Our vision statement sums up what it means to be part of the Bradshaw community – “At Bradshaw we all belong to a diverse community of inspired learners, growing together.” Bradshaw is renowned for its educational excellence, diverse opportunities to learn within and beyond the classroom, and for its supportive and inclusive learning environment.
Bradshaw offers high quality, innovative, research informed teaching and learning programs, from Preschool to Year 6. At Bradshaw we believe that all students can and will learn when given the right support and encouragement. We set high expectations for behaviour and academic progress and support students to reach their goals. At Bradshaw we believe that challenges are exciting and mistakes are to be welcomed in the learning process. We believe in our students. Social and emotional skill development play a vital role in improved learning outcomes and the wellbeing of everyone is paramount to our success. We welcome and celebrate diverse cultural backgrounds, benefiting from the rich contributions that each family brings to our community. Our Bradshaw Learner Qualities reflect these beliefs and are part of our everyday conversations with students and families.
We are Responsible
We Challenge Ourselves
We Learn Together
The school Leadership Team invites all families to talk to us regarding the learning needs of your child. Communication between home and school is key to your child’s success and you are encouraged to discuss any issues, as well as provide us with feedback on what is going well and what we can do to improve. It is important to remember that our school is your school and that your children benefit from your active involvement in school life and in the fostering of a positive home-school partnership. We look forward to working with you in partnership to foster your children's learning and to help make Bradshaw the best that it can be.
Bradshaw's first priority for enrolment is the area that the school sits in. At Bradshaw Primary School, we are obligated to make sure that the students living inside this priority enrolment area have access to educational services and facilities at this school. Our current enrolment levels are at a point where the school is required to place restrictions on out-of-priority enrolment area enrolments. This has meant that we now have a Priority Enrolment Policy.
