Rye Primary School

Strive to Achieve

Rye Primary School prides itself on having a strong focus on delivering a world class education for our students. By working closely with our local community our students are able to participate in a range of experiences to extend our students’ knowledge and skills. These experiences include environmental and water programs, coding through the use of sphero robots, golf coaching at a high standard golf venue, a bike mechanics program, social inclusion events and art projects. 

We continue our close affiliation with many local service organisations and are proudly supported by local businesses, volunteers and charities. In 2022, we held our third annual Spring Gala, a social event supported brilliantly by our school families and wider community. Our students are encouraged to be active participants in the wider community and take part in a wide range of local events such as ANZAC and Remembrance Day, Seal the Loop, isea, icare, environment days, festivals and sporting and cultural events. Through involvement and performance in these events our students learn skills and social behaviours appropriate to the situations. Our exceptional students demonstrate our school values of Respect, Integrity and Resilience in everything they do.

A Safe Environment

Our commitment to child safety

Rye Primary School is committed to child safety, with zero tolerance for child abuse.

We are committed to providing a child safe environment where all children and young people feel safe, secure and that their voices are heard when it comes to decisions that affect their lives. Our child safe policies, procedures, strategies and practices will be inclusive of the needs of all children, particularly Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, children with disabilities, children who are gender diverse, and all children who are vulnerable.

Every person involved in Rye Primary School has a responsibility to understand the important and specific role they play both individually and collectively in our school. We strive to ensure that the wellbeing and safety of all children and young people is at the forefront of all we do and every decision we make.
