Bassendean Primary School first opened as West Guildford Primary School in October 1906. In 1922 the West Guildford area, along with the school, was renamed Bassendean.
As a public school, Bassendean Primary School implements the identified values, focus outcomes and strategic directions of the Department of Education. We aspire to be a school of excellence where students strive to achieve and be successful. We aim to develop students who are confident and positive in developing meaningful relationships and have an understanding that each individual is different. As educators in partnership with parents, our greatest aspiration is that our students will grow up to be adults who contribute positively to their world.
Our teaching methods and standards are in line with the Australian Curriculum. We are reflective of our practices and future focused on improvement. Our students are provided with support and opportunities to become self and socially aware.
As part of our Pastoral Care we have implemented Kids Matter and the social and emotional learning program, Bounce Back. Our support team comprises our Students at Educational Risk Coordinator, a Youthcare Chaplain, School Health Nurse and School Psychologist.
We have specialist teachers delivering an integrated curriculum in Visual Art, Music, Indonesian and Physical Education.
The Arts has a strong tradition in the local community.
Our students participate in a wide range of sports throughout the year including swimming lessons, school swimming carnival, cross country, athletics, gymnastics, winter sports, inter-school carnivals and a range of specialist sports clinics. The school also participates in the Department of Sport and Recreation’s ‘Active After School Program’.
Our Vision – Bassendean Primary School community aims to provide a positive and safe environment that enriches every child’s desire to learn and strive for excellence and to be happy, responsible and confident members of the community.
