At Cambridge PS, we pride ourselves on our excellent achievements in literacy and our passion for learning. We, as teachers, work together in Professional Learning Communities to develop our knowledge and skills as leaders of literacy learning. We work in teams to plan our literacy program and then work together to assess the achievements of our students. This constant focus on the learning that is happening in our school allows us to refine our lessons and differentiate the curriculum to meet the needs of every student. Importance is placed on all staff working together to keep abreast of best practice and current research in teaching of literacy.

Our teachers understand what it takes to provide students with the necessary knowledge and skills to successfully navigate the curriculum as 21st Century learners and fully participate and contribute to an ever changing, global community.

Literacy and numeracy are key life skills that enable students to learn and thrive in all curriculum areas. Success in these foundational areas at Cambridge PS will benefit students for the rest of their lives.

The Victorian Curriculum ensures that students are better equipped to deal with our changing world. The curriculum includes a strong focus on the foundational skills of literacy and numeracy, personal and social skills and new areas of learning.

Child Safe

Cambridge PS is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people. This will be the primary focus of our care and decision-making.

Cambridge PS strives to equip and empower life long learning that contribute collaboratively to build a positive, inclusive and successful school and community. Our four values of Respect, Integrity, Self-Resilience, and Excellence are taught explicitly within the classroom and across school settings and guide the decisions and behaviours of all members of our school community, including relation to child safety:

  • Respect – show care and concern for others
  • Integrity – be safe, honest, true, fair and considerate, take responsibility for your actions
  • Self-resilience – bouncing back from setback and having a growth mindset
  • Excellence – aiming high to be the very best we can

Cambridge PS has zero tolerance for child abuse.

We are committed to providing a child safe environment where children and young people are safe and feel safe, and their voices are heard about decisions that affect their lives. Our child safe policies, procedures, strategies and practices will be inclusive of the needs of all children, particularly Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, children with disabilities, students in out of home care, LGBTI students and children who are vulnerable.

Every person involved in Cambridge PS has a responsibility to understand the important and specific role they play individually and collectively to ensure that the wellbeing and safety of all children and young people is at the forefront of all they do and every decision they make.


In its planning, decision-making and operations, Cambridge PS will:

  • Take a preventative, proactive and participatory approach to child safety
  • Value and empower children to participate in decisions which affect their lives
  • Foster a culture of openness that supports all persons to safely disclose risks of harm to children
  • Respect diversity in cultures and child rearing practices while keeping child safety paramount
  • Provide written guidance on appropriate conduct and behaviour towards children
  • Engage only the most suitable people to work with children and have high quality staff and volunteer supervision and professional development
  • Ensure children know who to talk with if they are worried or are feeling unsafe, and that they are comfortable and encouraged to raise such concerns
  • Report suspected abuse, neglect or mistreatment promptly to the appropriate authorities
  • Share information appropriately and lawfully with other organisations where the safety and wellbeing of children is at risk
  • Value the input of and communicate regularly with families and carers
