Welcome to Lockridge Primary School’s website which provides you with access to information about our school, staff, students and community. Although the information provided is broad and covers most areas of the school, it is only a snapshot of our school and what it provides for students each and every day. If you require more information please feel free to contact the school to organise to speak to a staff member, or to organise a meeting.
Lockridge Primary School is located 12kms from the Perth CBD and is in the City of Swan (a beautifully, diverse area comprised of a unique blend of residential, commercial, industrial and rural land) and has an enrolment of 250 students. Built during 2009, on the original school site, the new Lockridge Primary School opened in 2010. The school logo is a Gryphon and the school motto is ‘Wisdom and Courage’.
The student population, while mainly from an Australian background, is culturally diverse with families from Asia, Middle East, South Africa and Europe. Approximately 25% of students are from Aboriginal backgrounds.
The building names acknowledge the Noongar Heritage of the area where the school now stands.
Baroo learning block houses a purpose-built Art/Science Room and 3 learning areas, and is home to our specialist Science program. A huge basketball/tennis/netball court and impressive amphitheatre lead down to the school oval, complete with cricket nets, fitness trail, jump pits, multi-sport goal posts and play equipment. At the front of the school is a modern administrative building. Situated at the school are a range of services including a Parental facility, Aboriginal & Islander Education Officer, School Psychologist, School Chaplain and a Dental Clinic. The grounds are a beautiful combination of lawns, massed plantings of drought resistance native plants, trees and garden features, including NAIDOC Gardens , Kitchen Garden and Orchard. Students play a significant part in the design and planting of our gardens.
Lockridge Primary School offers an innovative teaching and learning environment where we recognise that students learn at different rates. We believe that students have access to a flexible, supportive learning environment and have the opportunity to progress at their own rate of development. The school provides a range of education programs for approximately 270 students with an emphasis on an explicit approach to teaching in Literacy and Numeracy. The provision of a Curriculum Coordinator and Student Services Coordinator ensures early intervention as soon as it is required. Early intervention programs are conducted by trained staff once students are identified as needing further help.
