The aim of St Philomena's Catholic Primary School is to help the children develop spiritually, intellectually, psychologically, socially, culturally and physically with the school playing an important role in fostering the spiritual and moral development of the children.
St. Phil's employ a staff that are supportive of one another, and also of their parent community, ensuring an inclusive and welcoming environment is provided where every staff member knows every child by name.
At St. Phil's, high achievement in student learning is the norm but student well-being, particularly social and emotional learning, has a priority and is interwoven within and across the curriculum.
In 2019, St. Philomena's introduced an explicit Kindergarten to Year Six teaching program which focuses on the development of skills for social and academic success. The "Second Step" program is research-based, teacher-informed, and classroom-tested to promote the social-emotional development, safety, and well-being of children to assist them in their learning.
