Cambridge PS aims to provide a stimulating, supportive and caring environment. The school acknowledges and celebrates individuality by having a positive view of the uniqueness of the learner while focusing on individual growth and the fostering of talents.
The school implements a diverse range of programs to support student engagement, school attendance and Growth Mindset.
Our school accesses health professionals including a speech pathologist, together with welfare organisations in an effort to address the wellbeing needs of our families.
We encourage our families to utilise and explore the online resources below. The resources can support our Cambridge PS families and students.
We are always here to support our Cambridge PS families.
Daily attendance is critical so students don’t fall behind socially and developmentally. School helps:
– Maximise life opportunities for students by building education and support networks
– Develop important skills, knowledge and values that set up students for further learning and participation in the community
– Students make the most of life opportunities
Students who attend school and complete Year 12, or an equivalent, have:
– Better health outcomes
– Better employment outcomes
– Higher incomes across their lives
Attendance at Cambridge PS is tracked. Unexplained absences and late arrivals that are not endorsed by the school will need to be explained by families each term. Students considered at risk due to high absenteeism or consistently late, will be offered additional support through individualised plans to re-engage into school and class.
Helping students to attend school each day is a shared responsibility of all parents, students and the school community. We will work with parents, students and their families to ensure all students adhere to the school Attendance Policy.
Disability Inclusion is a new funding model being rolled out across all schools in Victoria which helps support inclusive practices. The new model will allow Cambridge PS to better make the adjustments our students need to help with their participation, engagement and learning at school. It provides additional investment that our school can use to support students with a wide range of additional learning needs and diagnoses including autism and ADHD.
