Eaglehawk North Primary School is a government primary school located on the western fringe of the regional city of Bendigo. The school has strong connections to the local Eaglehawk community and engages in a number of local community events and interacts with a number of community organisations.

Eaglehawk North's vision is:

As every learner moves through Eaglehawk North Primary School, they do so with: mutual respect, a mindset of success and a sense of social responsibility.

The values our school community embraces are respect for self, respect for others, respect for learning and respect for the school environment. These values form the cornerstone of the way we interact and work with one another in our community.

The schools current Strategic Plan runs from 2018-2022. The four themes, creating a coherent curriculum based on the Victorian Curriculum, promoting authentic literacy and numeracy teaching and learning, delivering soundly structured instruction and developing self-regulated and resilient learners through the development of student voice and agency and implementing School-wide Positive Behaviour Support are guiding our work over the four years of this plan.

In 2021, the Eaglehawk North had a student population of 332 students. 3 of our students speak another language at home, and 19 students identify as indigenous. 117 students attracted Equity Funding.

This population of students was divided into four teaching and learning teams across the school and included a Foundation team, divided into 2 classrooms, a Year 1-2 team of four classrooms, a Year3-4 team of five classrooms and a year 5-6 team of five classrooms.

Specialist subjects in Art, Chinese Mandarin, Music and Physical Education were offered to all students.

Eaglehawk North's Student Family Occupation and Education Index is 0.4718.
