Please browse through this website as a starting point in the journey for the selection of a primary school that will best meet your child’s needs. 


At Deepdene we aim to provide our students with educational opportunities that will enable them to reach their full potential and achieve success academically, socially and personally. Our curriculum is inclusive and developmental. Students are challenged to extend their skills and knowledge in a caring and supportive environment. It is most important that children are happy and engaged during their seven years at primary school.


The staff of Deepdene Primary School are an enthusiastic and experienced team of people who are committed to excellence and to making a positive difference to student outcomes.


We want our students to feel safe and happy in an atmoshphere that encourages a love of learning. We want our students to be confident in tackling challenges and be caring of others along the way. We want them to develop positive social skills, healthy relationship values and a strong sense of themselves as individuals.
