School Profile


Swan View Primary is a Level 5 school with an enrolment of 428 students from Kindergarten to Year 7, of this enrolment, 62 are Indigenous students. 

 

Of our total student body 164 students come from outside the local intake area.  The school has 17 teaching areas, including an  Early Childhood Unit, Music Room, Art Room, Computer Laboratory, Library Resource Centre, Covered Assembly Area, Canteen and Dental Therapy Unit. 

 

The learning program consists of rich and varied learning experiences focusing on literacy and numeracy and the management of appropriate behaviour.

 

Attendance data has been considered as part of the School Self Assessment process, students and families categorised as being at risk are identified.  To support Indigenous attendance the school  uses the District Attendance Officers as part of a case management plan.

 

Graduates from Swan View Primary School enrol in surrounding high schools.  Most students transition to Swan View Senior High School.  In 2012 there was an increase in the number attending Governor Stirling Senior High School for specific specialised programs such as sport, visual arts and academic extension programs.

 

The socio-economic index is 96.8, a slight increase over the past few years. Our students come from a wide range of social circumstances creating many challenges for the staff. Our parent/carer community is supportive of the school, and many volunteer time and resources to the learning programs.

 

The school’s priorities are Literacy, Numeracy and Behaviour Management and Discipline, which embraces the  Values Education Framework.

 

24 teaching staff and the 25 support staff working in the school were retained from the previous year.  Two of the three leadership team members were engaged in teaching.  All teaching staff members are registered with the Teachers Registration Board of WA.
