     Welcome to Longford Primary Website

Welcome to the Longford Primary School Website. Our school has a population of 120 students and is located 7 kilometres from Sale.

The school is renowned for its excellent history of parental involvement in its programs. This dedication has become a vital component in the ongoing education and welfare of students. Our school lives through its values of integrity, respect, responsibility and excellence.  These values are embedded and displayed widely through our school.

Academically our school promotes and values the explicit teaching of literacy and numeracy. We do this through having a consistent teaching approach particularly in the areas of writing and spelling. Our whole school assessment schedule and computerised academic tracking program ensure that our students are working at their appropriate academic level.

Longford has a proud history of co-curricular success with students participating (and winning) in the local eisteddfods, art shows and a range of sporting events including swimming, cross country and athletics. This combined with our specialist areas of art, music, physical education and library lead to a very balanced curriculum.

I consider myself very fortunate working at a school where the entire community is focused on delivering great educational opportunities to its students. Enjoy browsing through our website and please contact me for further information.
