Melton South Primary School

Fulfilment Through Learning

Melton South Primary School is now entering its 94th year of service to the community. There have been many changes over the years and the school now has over 800 students, and 90 staff including the ancillary staff.

Parents are very involved at Melton South in many ways and it is their dedicated support and assistance in many areas that enables us to provide the quality of education that we offer.

Melton South Primary School values Respect, Honesty, Tolerance, Care, Co-operation, Fun, & Responsibility. It is through these values we relate to our students, parents and the community. The school is committed to addressing students individual needs through the development and implementation of quality testing and learning programs which foster lifelong learning.

Our Philosophy

At Melton South Primary we believe everyone has the right to be safe, respected and to learn. Our school values, co-operation, responsibility, fairness, caring, tolerance, respect, honesty and fun, guide the decisions and behaviours of all members of our school community.

At MSPS we believe all children can achieve success given the opportunity, support and inspiration though a strong performance and development culture. Our Vision is to create a safe and respectful environment which fosters a growth mindset in all stakeholders to achieve excellence. We administer, collate and analyse student data to inform teaching and learning. We use High Impact Teaching Strategies including setting goals, structured lessons, explicit teaching, collaborative learning and multiple exposures with an ongoing focus on differentiated teaching. We constantly strive to adopt best practice by keeping informed of new initiatives based on educational theory and research.

We are strongly committed to creating and supporting a school wide culture and environment that recognises and enhances student well-being.  Our Mission is that Melton South Primary School is a progressive community who lead the way.  Together we create motivated, respectful learners who achieve excellence.

Our buildings and grounds are a source of great pride and improvement.

We offer a full program of specialist subjects which include Performing Arts and Art & Technology, Physical Education and Sport, which may change to suit the school’s needs from year to year. In 2018 our Prep to Year 3 classes will also be participating in a LOTE (Language Other than English) program which will be French.

We have a strong Welfare and Discipline Policy.

We aim to provide your child with skills in literacy and numeracy and to provide the opportunities for your child to develop interests as a happy and responsible member of society.
