Airly Primary School caters for the individual student, through the joint involvement of the family, school and community. Strong relationships are developed to improve student self-esteem, encouraging students to extend themselves and become risk-takers in their learning.

Airly Primary School offers a broad curriculum based on the Victorian Curriculum.

A Systematic Synthetic Phonics approach is used to introduce sounds and letter names to students.  This begins in the junior years and continues into the upper classes as students learn grammar rules.  The Jolly Phonics program is utilised.  The VCOP Writing Program is also implemented (Vocabulary, Connectives, Openers and Punctuation).

Programs are monitored to cater for the diversity of student needs. Achievable goals are set for students. Individual Learning Plans are developed for all students and Student Support Services are available (providing Speech Therapy, Psychologists & Visiting Teacher for the Hearing Impaired).

The Wellington Network has a focus on School Wide Positive Behaviour Support. Airly Primary School has developed a Behaviour Matrix outlining the behaviours expected in all school settings. This applies to students, staff, parents and the wider community when they visit our school. A Parent Matrix was developed in 2016.

Another Wellington Network focus is Challenging Learning. High powered learning environments involve children who are equipped with skills and attitudes to be self-directed learners, have witnessed clear growth in their own learning resulting in high levels of self-belief and learner confidence, and are supported by targeted challenge and meaningful feedback to make significant learning growth. Airly Primary School has started along this journey where students’ learning is enhanced as they are supported to develop intentional strategies that promote learning.
