Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. We thank-you for giving us the opportunity to outline our educational programs and invite you to visit the school and see for yourself the outstanding curriculum and facilities we offer.
At Heidelberg Primary School we aim to embed our school motto “We care what we do” into all aspects of school life. Our focus is on developing and nurturing every child. We place a strong emphasis on tailoring the teaching and learning to suit individual children’s needs and learning styles. This together with excellent facilities and many enrichment programs provide an outstanding learning environment for all children.
Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we have had to cancel our Information Night and upcoming school tours. However, we would encourage you to view the online Information Night video (above) and read the Frequently Asked Questions document to help you learn more about Heidelberg Primary School and what we offer for your child and family.

Due to current COVID restrictions in place, the Victorian Government has directed that schools must not conduct on-site school tours for prospective students and their families at this time, in addition to having parents and kinder students attend on-site transition programs. Because of these developments, the Transition Program at Heidelberg Primary School will now be run online.
Once enrolled, parents will be sent a secure link to the Heidelberg Transition Blog (which will be accessible from Monday 12th October). On this blog, teachers will post weekly videos, highlighting areas of the school, including playgrounds, classrooms, while also showing both student and parents the soon-to-be familiar faces of teaching staff at our school.
We will aim to provide more information to parents through this secure site, making the transition as smooth as possible. The Foundation Team thank the incoming 2021 families for their support and understanding, with this new COVID Safe Transition plan.
Heidelberg Primary School remains committed to making Transition a priority for all students and families and we look forward to providing a new online format for our kindergarten students this year.
