Florey Primary School
Florey Primary School | Ratcliffe Crescent, Florey ACT 2615 |
Florey Primary School is situated in Belconnen in the north of the Australian Capital Territory. Our school includes a preschool campus for four year olds and a primary campus for students aged between five and twelve, with a current enrolment of 435 students across the two campuses.
The Florey community is made up of a diverse range of nationalities and backgrounds. The multicultural nature of the school (35% ESL students) provides opportunities for interaction amongst students from more than 40 different countries.
At Florey, we value cultural diversity and develop differentiated teaching and learning programs which enable all students to feel successful and supported in an inclusive environment. As a community we promote the values of respect, tolerance and excellence.
Florey is an identified National Partnership school and receives additional funding to participate in a set of reforms focused on making a measurable difference to the educational outcomes of students, with a strong emphasis on Literacy and Numeracy.
Classroom teachers provide targeted programs with explicit instruction. Specialist teachers are employed to teach individual students and differentiated groups, as well as providing a mentor / coach model to improve teacher pedagogy.
An Indonesian language program is offered to students in years 3 – 6. We have recently introduced the Primary Connections Science program throughout the school as well as using the First Steps resources to support our literacy program.
On site facilities include a large covered assembly area/ basketball court, a recently upgraded Assembly Hall and a new purpose-built learning space dedicated to the teaching of Science and Drama.
We look forward to your involvement in our school community.
Feel free to contact us at any time.
I am delighted to be the Principal of the school and invite you to visit us online or in person.
