Bateman Primary - Independent Public School

Bateman Primary School, an Independent Public School situated 14km south of Perth City, caters for approximately 370 students from Kindergarten to Year 6. Our specially trained team of early childhood teachers and education assistants ensure that your child's first formal contacts with education are fun, engaging and structured to provide them with the very best start possible to their learning journey.  The school has a strong literacy and numeracy focus with each child catered for at their level of need and ability across the whole school.

Our teaching and learning program challenges all students to develop the necessary skills, understandings and attitudes to become independent learners and productive members of our community.  Along with excellent school-wide programs in literacy, numeracy, science and the humanities we also offer specialist teacher subjects including science, physical education, music and Chinese from Year 1 - 6 as well as a vibrant social-emotional program.  We also have many of our children involved in additional instrumental music lessons through the School of Instrumental Music.

Bateman Primary has a well-deserved reputation of being a very community focused school with parents playing an important role in supporting our children through programs such as MiniLit and our cooking and kitchen garden program.  Our classrooms are bright, friendly and safe and students have their efforts recognised through a range of classroom reward programs.  All staff value and promote the development of the 'whole child' whilst striving for excellence in all that we do.

The school features very modern early childhood buildings as well as a new music room and science lab and we have just refurbished our library to stimulate young readers.  All classrooms are equipped with interactive white boards and computers and we utilise tablet technology to enhance the learning opportunities for our children.  Our early childhood children enjoy their own playground and sandpits while our older children have a range of new playgrounds, basketball courts and an excellent oval to allow them to play with their friends in safe and fully supervised surroundings.  A feature of the school grounds is our sustainable garden which has been developed in conjunction with our parents and provides a stimulating learning centre between the school buildings and our extensive bushland.  All rooms are fully air conditioned, adding to the stimulating learning environment.
