Our Approach

At Yarraville West, we are committed to ensuring that your child is happy, healthy, safe and having fun, whilst learning. Our primary concern is the wellbeing of your child.


All teaching and learning at our school is centred around ensuring that children are supported socially and emotionally, in order for them to flourish. Our school values, Respect, Responsibility, Resilience and Teamwork are threaded through the curriculum and whole school activities. These values encourage students to make positive choices in their day-to-day learning and interactions with others. 


We focus on positive education, combining academic skills, social skills, emotional regulation and resilience. Wellbeing messages and our school values are explored through the use of a range of teaching strategies and resources appropriate to each year level.


In the classroom students are given frequent opportunities to work with others, which helps to foster cooperation and teamwork. Teachers have collaborated to define the key principles of effective classroom management at our school. We believe in Respect, Organisation, Consistency, Routine, Positivity, Engagement and High Expectations.


In the playground we aim to reinforce positive relationships. There are a number of lunchtime activities, the Buddy program, and teachers on yard duty to help sort out problems or just have a chat!
