Welcome to Kingsbury Primary School. We are a unique school community, small in size but big on developing close and personal connections with our school families and the wider community. All students and families from across the world are invited to join us at our school. Here, we look after the whole child, developing social, emotional and academic learning strengths though personalised, differentiated curriculum.

Kingsbury teachers provide an inclusive and nurturing environment. Our teachers understand the importance of Child Safety and know and care for each and every child across the school. They are experienced and dedicated educators who work collaboratively in teams to provide the Victorian Curriculum with focus on Literacy and Numeracy. We understand that many students come to our school with a language background other than English and cater for this each day in classrooms and by providing additional EAL support.

Our school also acknowledges that children have different interests and strengths. We provide a range of Specialist programs that engage our students:- Performing and Visual Arts, Digital Technology, Physical Education, STEM (with a focus on Science), Indonesian and a Vietnamese Cultural Class which allows our Vietnamese students to continue to learn about and practise their own language.  Each Wednesday, extra-curricula Keyboard Lessons are offered.

Kingsbury also believes in the importance of community engagement. Our school actively participates in Inter-school sport and we have strong relationships with the Carlton Football Club, the 2/14 Battalion, Reservoir High and our other local schools. We value the contributions and expertise of our parents and invite you into our school as volunteers and experts.

Kingsbury Kids are confident and resilient. They demonstrate tolerance, respect and understanding of the needs and differences of others. They know how to work in teams and support each other. They go on to achieve great things at secondary school and they always come back to let us know how they are doing. I am extremely proud of our Kingsbury graduates; they develop lifelong skills and a love of learning.

I warmly invite you to come and join us in our community. Enrolments are now being accepted. Contact the school to organise a meeting with me and a personalised tour of our facilities.

I look forward to meeting you.
