Principal’s Welcome

At Tuart Forest Primary School, it is our passion to ensure that every child has an outstanding education resulting in a high literacy and numeracy competency. Our mission, Building Strong Foundations for Every Student, Every Day signifies our determination for all students to be successful. As a school that prides itself on meeting the needs of every child, we aim to achieve the twin goals of excellence and equity. We provide opportunities that extend and challenge every child to achieve the highest possible standards and their personal best.

The critical importance of the early years of a child’s life to their future educational success is well known. At Tuart Forest Primary School, we want every child to have the best start to school, and to master the foundation literacy and numeracy skills, as well as the personal and social capabilities, required for later years of schooling.

At Tuart Forest Primary we are innovators in public school education. Our dedicated staff strive for high standards in teaching and learning and enthusiastically share good teaching practices, ideas and resources. We seek out professional learning that will maintain excellence and a high degree of expertise in our teaching areas. Our committed staff form a collaborative, proactive team and bring a range of skills that benefit all students. This dedication, and a focus on workforce diversity, has helped improve the opportunities for our staff and students.

As students progress through school, it is important to ensure they develop essential skills, knowledge and understandings in a range of disciplines. We want parents, families and communities to support their children’s learning at home and in school, and to value education as a powerful driver for future success and fulfilment.

When they graduate from school, we want our students to be confident about taking their places in the world, and to be active citizens who contribute to society in many different ways.
