Waverley Primary School

Waverley Primary School is a friendly, welcoming school with a strong community focus. We provide a comprehensive education to all students, whilst catering for individual learning needs and abilities.

We offer an outstanding creative arts program, and many opportunities for students to be involved in a variety of sporting activities, public speaking and performance events.

Our school is set in spacious grounds, offering extensive grassed areas, multipurpose netball/basketball court and a large carpark/drop-off area.

Primary schools in NSW follow a curriculum based on stages of learning. Each stage is approximately equivalent to two school years. For each learning stage there are skills, knowledge and a level of understanding that each student should develop.

Learning Stages

Early Stage 1 refers to Kindergarten

Kindergarten is an important year of schooling as children formally begin to develop their literacy and numeracy skills. At Waverley Primary our whole school community will help your child adjust to school and help them to feel comfortable. Every Kindergarten student is paired up with a ‘Buddy’ from Years 5 & 6 to help Kindergarten settle into the school routine.

There are great opportunities for students to participate in extra-curricular activities. These include competitions, exhibitions, sport, performances and special events. Student leadership programs provide many activities that broaden your child's experience at school.
