Warranwood Primary School is situated in a largely residential area of the hills between Warrandyte and Ringwood some 30km east of the city of Melbourne. The school was opened in 1996 and has since served the local community in excellent modern facilities.

These facilities include bright open-space classrooms, gym, Performing Arts space, art room, Japanese room, expansive library and numerous play spaces that include a variety of play equipment, 2 basketball courts, oval, shaded play areas and a large brand new synthetic grass playing field and running track.

The BER program allowed the construction of a new six classroom learning space, enhancing the provision of a contemporary learning environment and dynamic, flexible programs for the 429 students enrolled.

School organisation is based on multi-age class teams, which plan, implement and assess collaboratively. The specialist team comprises teachers of Physical Education, Visual Arts, Performing Arts and Languages (Japanese).

The provision of computer technology to enhance learning has been a hallmark of the school for some years. Our Senior School implements a BYOD iPad program, and we have class sets of netbook pc's across the remainder of the school levels.

Parents have high aspirations for their children and the school offers a range of learning programs that aim to develop the whole child. Support and extension programs cater for the different interests and abilities of the students.

An extensive list of enrichment activities include intra and interschool sports, camping programs, Japanese drumming, drama and music lessons and productions, as well as a range of student leadership opportunities.

The HAWK (High Achieving Warranwood Kids) program provides all students with a range of interest based academic and social development programs. Achievement in all aspects of schooling is affirmed and celebrated.

Our school RUIn values encourage the development of high quality relationships between all members of the school community. These strong connections are considered essential to the development of a high-quality teaching and learning environment.

Extensive wellbeing and leadership programs operate across the school. Home/school partnerships are highly valued and both parents and teachers espouse high expectations for the achievement of students at the school.

The demographics of the school are very stable. The student population is made up of students from predominantly Anglo Saxon or second–generation European backgrounds.

A very small number of students have English as a second language. Also, the School has a small number of Koorie students and students with extra learning needs who are supported by the Program for Students with Disabilities (PSD). The school has a Student Family Occupation (SFO) index of 0.2550.

Staffing

In 2020, the School employs a Principal and an Assistant Principal, two Learning Specialist teachers, 20 full–time and 5 part–time classroom teachers, and 7 Education Support (ES) staff.

The school facilities include permanent classrooms with withdrawal facilities, interview and teacher meeting rooms, a library/resource centre, classrooms for the creative arts, including Music, Dance, Drama and Art.

There is a school hall and an administration building which includes a staffroom. The school currently has only permanent classroom buildings and a gymnasium. The school offers an Out of School Hours program which operates each morning and afternoon.

The school grounds are complimented by the Nangkita wetland area and offers a number of vast open sporting facilities and playground areas.
