Preps 2024



Cranbourne Primary School is a small school offering students a big future! In our school of 250 students, we leverage our small class sizes and high support ratios to ensure every student is known, seen and extended as an individual.


Our students achieve excellence through our school values – PRIDE (persistence, responsibility, independence, discipline and enthusiasm). We provide students a safe and nurturing environment, full of educational opportunities.


Cranbourne Primary School provides:

  • An environment where students have input into and take responsibility for their learning
  • Academic programs that help students develop to their maximum potential
  • Highly committed staff who provide a focused learning program for each child in their care
  • A caring and supportive environment where students feel safe and secure
  • A community atmosphere where students, teachers and parents know each other and work together

Students have access to a variety of specialist programs each week including PE, ICT, The Arts and Cultural Studies. Our students with English as an additional language are also supported by an EAL teacher.


A diverse array of extra curricula activities are offered throughout the year. Students have opportunities to access teacher led clubs, camps and excursions. Sport, music and lunchtime club opportunities ensure students interests are catered to both in and out of the classroom. We have a close relationship with Cranbourne Secondary College and use this partnership to help our senior students prepare for their Secondary education journey.


At Cranbourne Primary School our students are involved in activities throughout the school to enhance positive relationships. Playground areas are open to all students which allows siblings and students across various ages to interact during recreation periods. Our Breakfast Club runs many mornings a week and helps our students to bond with teachers and each other while ensuring everyone’s learning is off to a great start.


If you like the idea of your child being known, supported and extended in a small school environment, contact the school to organise a tour today!
