As a proud Victorian Government Primary School, Eltham North has a clear vision and purpose. The school is renowned for fostering student excellence with the support and involvement of our learning community.
At Eltham North, the school community works together to ensure every child has a positive, happy and rewarding school experience. Parents and teachers are genuine partners in the learning process, ensuring students are encouraged to participate, to strive to achieve their best, to be considerate and supportive of others, and to value the pursuit of knowledge.
The school attracts and retains an experienced, caring and innovative staff who work to provide a range of high quality learning opportunities to stimulate and challenge the individual needs and talents of their students. This is done within a collaborative culture, creating a strong sense of community and team spirit.
Student enrolment for 2024 is 520 students with results in national testing consistently showing performance well above state and national means. This is testimony to the quality education provided.
At Eltham North, our challenge is to target key indicators which define what it is to be a truly successful learner, a learner who not only achieves well in national testing, but who is deemed successful within the context of his/her area of talent. To achieve this we focus on providing our students with access to a broad range of learning opportunities that respond to the diversity of their individual needs and abilities. We believe these opportunities will continue to evolve through the commitment of our dedicated staff.
We are confident our focus on individual needs and abilities will be achieved through maintaining strong partnerships with parents and the wider community. This, in turn, provides a comprehensive approach to challenging our students to achieve their best and build self-confidence in their personal abilities. This approach of building the foundations of academic and social capabilities of our students reflects our school's ethos:
