Our Moral Purpose at Grasmere 
At Grasmere Primary School we work in partnership with our school community to build the social and emotional literacy of each child to support them in reaching their true academic potential. 

Our goal as educators at Grasmere Primary School is to improve student learning outcomes through evidence-based approaches which ensure high quality teaching practices.  We strive for excellence amongst our students whilst continuing to foster an inclusive, equitable, creative, and reflective learning culture. 

We provide a friendly, welcoming, and caring school environment with clear expectations of the standards of behaviour expected across all areas of the school setting. 

Students at Grasmere Primary School are leaders of their own learning and wellbeing journey.  They are inspired to become respectful, inclusive, curious and leaders of our School. Student voice and agency are highly valued by the staff and students at Grasmere Primary School, creating a sense of belonging and celebrating the diversity within our school culture. 

Our unique setting creates opportunities for rich learning opportunities which build curiosity, broaden minds and encourage a love of learning in each child. 

Grasmere Primary School respectfully acknowledges our indigenous elders of the past, present and future and welcome all to our school, on the traditional lands of the Gunditjmara people. 

Over the next 4 years and working with the new School Strategic Plan, Grasmere Primary School aims to focus our attention on continuing the development of building the capacity and confidence in staff to deliver a consistent and highly engaging Literacy and Numeracy approach across F-6.  

We are prioritising the wellbeing of each student through our safe, supportive, and inclusive environment that fosters connection and a feeling of acceptance.  Grasmere Primary School is committed to strengthening the physical, emotional, and culturally safe approaches to support learning and safeguarding the wellbeing of staff. 

We aim to continue to create positive partnerships with our students, parents, and wider school community.
