About RPPS

Roxburgh Park Primary School was established in 2002. It is situated in the suburb of Roxburgh Park, Victoria approximately 20km from the City of Melbourne. The school serves an outer suburban residential area of diverse cultures and socio-economic backgrounds.

The school has purpose built facilities for Library, Visual Art, Italian, Computers and technology, Science and Physical Education. Our classrooms are a mixture of permanent buildings and portables.

The school is organised into year level teaching teams. Specialist programs operate Physical Education, Italian, Visual Arts, Performing Arts and STEM. Support programs are provided in Literacy and numeracy as well as Social Engagement.

Our school curriculum draws on elements of the Victorian Curriculum to develop and implement a curriculum that is meaningful for students, with a strong commitment and focus on Literacy and Numeracy.  The Learning Programs are structured to cater for individual student learning needs, in a supportive learning environment where students are given daily opportunities to read, write, investigate, speak, and listen.

We have a team of dedicated and enthusiastic teachers who provide a supportive learning environment.  Staff work together in Collaborative Teams, working together to develop high quality teaching and learning programs that reflect high impact teaching strategies. Student progress is closely tracked to ensure all students are demonstrating strong learning gains with a focus on improving student outcomes through collaborative practices, reflection and feedback. Teams diagnose student learning needs to plan, implement and evaluate teaching responses. Learning Intentions and Success Criteria are developed for all sessions, making the focus and indicators of success of the lesson visible to the students. 

The School uses the School Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) as a framework that brings together school communities to develop positive, safe, supportive learning cultures. The goal of School Wide Positive Behaviour Support at Roxburgh Park Primary School is to provide a safe and stimulating learning environment in which students can reach their full educational potential in a positive school culture that engages and supports them within our community. SWPBS assists to improve social, emotional, behavioral and academic outcomes for children and young people.

The school has computers and iPads in P-2 classrooms enabling individual access within their classrooms. The school proudly runs a 1:1 laptop program for every student in year 3-6, ensuring students are using the tools required for today’s work places.
