Philosophy & Mission Statement

At Templestowe Valley Primary School we aim to foster the best possible teaching and learning environment that is both innovative and secure, with a zero tolerance of child abuse.

The school is committed to supporting and respecting all children in our community – including those with a disability and those from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds (including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander).

Each student is valued, listened to and supported in their learning.

All students feel safe and the school aims to help each child work and strive to reach their full potential.
