Welcome to our warm and friendly Mitcham Primary School community. Choosing the right school is a very important decision and I invite you to visit Mitcham and discover why we are so proud of our school. 

Our vision at Mitcham Primary School is to foster Thinkers, Learners and Leaders and to create a passionate learning community that inspires, challenges, and supports all students to achieve their personal best and make a positive contribution to the world in which they live.

Mitcham Primary School has a record of being a safe, caring school with strong academic outcomes, community support and a commitment to continuous improvement. Student Learning Outcomes are consistently strong, which support effective teaching and learning practices. We have a whole school approach to instructional models so that as students transition through grades, they are hearing shared language which builds understanding over consecutive years. We pride ourselves on knowing our students, academically and socially. We assess what our students know and plan for their individual needs. Students are engaged by setting their own personal learning goals and celebrating their success once achieved.

Our School values of kindness, resilience, respect, and love of learning are strongly evidenced by positive student behaviour and strong academic achievement. A positive approach to learning and wellbeing is used by staff and students through practising Gratitude, Mindfulness and developing a Growth Mindset. Mitcham Primary School has an agreed approach to student conduct, with clear expectations of behaviour evident in classrooms and in the playground. A strong partnership between home and school exists with very high levels of parent participation and involvement.

We offer a comprehensive, rich and exciting educational program within a caring and supportive environment, and we enjoy an excellent reputation within the local community and beyond.

Thank you for showing an interest in our school and I look forward to welcoming you in for a school tour soon.
