• Teaching & Learning

    At Heidelberg Primary School we are committed to providing a high quality education for all children. We are currently transitioning from the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (commonly known as VELS) to AusVELS.  The Australian Curriculum in Victoria (AusVELS) provides the framework for curriculum in Years Foundation to 10 in all government schools (Foundation being the first year of school). AusVELS uses an eleven level structure to reflect the design of the new Australian Curriculum, whilst retaining Victorian priorities and approaches to teaching and learning.

    The very positive behaviour of our students reflects the school’s warm ethos, whereby students display the school values of Care, Cooperation, Integrity and Respect for themselves, others and property. Each student is encouraged to strive for his/her best. Heidelberg Primary School has a wide range of programs across all levels. We believe in providing our students with diverse educational experiences grounded in real life learning contexts and settings.
