Kororoit Creek Primary School is a fully authorized PYP school, catering for 3-12-year olds. The school is in Public-Private Partnership, maintained and operated through a connection of government and private sector companies. Established in a high growth area, the school has grown from 260 students in 2011 to over 1600 in 2022. We pride ourselves on being a true representation of our community, with over 50 languages and cultural backgrounds.

The school implements the PYP framework underpinned by the Victorian Curriculum, a transdisciplinary curriculum outlining the key outcomes and expectations of the Victorian Government. The curriculum supports us to unpack the Essential Elements using explicit Scope and Sequence documents, ensuring all students are working within their Zone of Proximal Development.

Being a PYP school, we have a major focus on documented curriculum, assessment and shared pedagogical approaches. We also have a major emphasis on evidence-based school improvement strategies. These strategies include the moderation of common student assessment tasks, data collection and analysis as well as evaluation of student learning growth over time. Timely and effective feedback to its community of learners underpins every student's personal learning goals. Teacher professional practice activities are rigorous and differentiated.

With a whole school approach to health, wellbeing, inclusion and engagement, KCPS supports strong community values that underpin its safe and orderly learning environment. These contribute directly to the school's positive standing and high reputation within the immediate and broader area.
