Our collaborative community approach provides opportunities for students, parents and others to engage with the school and positions Carlisle Primary School as a true community place of learning.
At Carlisle Primary School we inspire our students to develop confidence, resilience, independence, and the ability to collaborate with one another to be the problem solvers, creators and innovators of tomorrow.
We achieve this through:
- Excellence in teaching & learning;
- Empowering leadership;
- Creating the conditions that foster learning; and,
- Building a connected community.
Recently celebrating 100 years of continuous education to the Carlisle community and the surrounding neighbourhoods, Carlisle Primary School remains dedicated to excellence in student learning. Supported by a committed and engaged community, our school places great importance on ensuring students develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes that enable them to successfully adapt to a rapidly-changing society. We foster student success through quality teaching and learning programs, supportive pastoral care initiatives and a vibrant learning environment, where our students value the learning process and become confident and capable learners. Carlisle Primary School has generated a positive reputation for engaging our ever-evolving and culturally diverse community through establishing mutually beneficial parental partnerships. As our community continues to evolve, we welcome the involvement of students, parents and community members to join us in shaping the future of Carlisle Primary School.
We recognise the profound impact that parents have on their child’s learning and education and we understand that families bring skills that complement the teaching skills of our staff. Any contribution that families can make to their child’s learning journey is valued, respected and appreciated, where collaboration, support and partnering is welcomed and encouraged.
A dedicated School Board and Parents and Citizens Association are champions and advocates of our school. They provide direction and purpose to the school’s operations and assist with its connection with the broader community.
We highly value the input received from a range of community organisations and agencies that are committed to providing outstanding support to staff and students. As a hub of our local area for over a century, our school has worked hard to develop and maintain positive and fruitful relationships with a range of local stakeholders. We are committed to communicating openly and effectively, consulting with the community to inform decisions and harnessing its strengths to develop a place of learning that is unified and welcoming.
