Welcome to Beaconsfield Primary School
We would like to welcome you to our active and supportive learning community website.
Beaconsfield Primary School was founded in 1883. In 1954 an area school was built which later became the Primary School. In 2010 our redevelopment included two new buildings on the school site, a multi-purpose facility for use by students all over the school and members of the community and a Child and Family Centre constructed and used by parents and young children from the Beaconsfield community.
It is now a mix of old and new buildings that enjoys attractive and spacious grounds. A community library, solar heated indoor pool, art room, music room and ICT Lab provide a variety of learning opportunities.
At Beaconsfield Primary School our mission is “Aspire to rise”. We uphold the values of safety, fairness, learning and caring. These are reflected in our original school motto: Esse Quam Videri and are translated from the Latin as “To be rather than seeming to be” They are especially reflected in our guiding principles school rules which simply state: Be Safe, Be Fair, Learn and Care.
These guiding principles are on display throughout all areas of our school and also form the basis for an explicit teaching program by teachers in how children can practically apply these golden rules during their time at Beaconsfield Primary. These values also complement the School-wide Positive Behaviour Support approach that we take to managing issues relating to student behaviour and discipline.

This is fostered by the use of a joint school and community library, Child and Family Centre funded by the Federal Government and is located within the school grounds, with an extensive range of community and family services.
