Welcome to Canberra Primary School’s website.   We hope that it gives you a flavour of daily life at Canberra.
At Canberra Primary School our pupils are at the heart of everything that we do and we constantly strive to ensure that they are provided with a happy and safe learning environment where they receive the encouragement, challenge and support they require to achieve.
Canberra Primary School is an inclusive school where children are treated as individuals and nurtured to develop their skills and abilities.  We have high expectations of all of our children and recognise that they need opportunities to be both successful and challenged if they are to become independent, self-motivated and resilient.  We believe that the wide range of fun and creative learning opportunities provided combined with our caring ethos creates the conditions necessary for our children to achieve.
The partnership between home and school is central to our success and we aim to ensure that all parents and carers have the information they need to support their child.  We hope that the information, photographs and news articles available on our website helps to achieve this aim.
Please enjoy browsing our website!

Our school and nursery newsletters are sent out in a Sway each month.  They have been changed to a PDF format for the website and this means that some features and the layout might not work as effectively as in the originals.
