A Message from the Principal

I extend a warm welcome to you and your family. I am very proud to be the Principal of this wonderful school. It is a privilege for me to work with our students, our staff and our families to make our school the very best it can be. My aim is to lead our school community to enable us to work together to achieve our goals.


We aim to create a safe, nurturing yet challenging environment that is built on positive relationships; developing the whole student – emotionally, socially and academically. We care for and appreciate each of our students as the unique individuals that they are, each with distinct talents, interests and needs.


We provide an appealing and stimulating curriculum, based on the Victorian Curriculum, which is tailored to the needs of each and every student as we strive for high educational outcomes and personal bests for all of our students. Our passionate teachers  and staff ensure our students grow in confidence and capabilities and develop the skills for the rapidly changing, 21st century living. 


Clayton North Primary School is a friendly, vibrant, community-minded school. We are very keen to involve our community in our learning, developing true partnerships that value each student. There are many opportunities for parental and community involvement. We hope that through your participation and interest you will also come to feel very much a part of our school and its warm and generous community.


At Clayton North Primary School we have high expectations in everything we do.


Our approach to positive behaviour is proactive and centres on self-discipline, self-esteem and reflective processes always building on strengths and good choices.


I look forward to meeting you soon.
