History

The school, originally situated in Fauntleroy Avenue in 1908 was rebuilt in its present location in 1955. Through its long history, Redcliffe Primary School is proud of its heritage and achievements.

Originally, the school was L shaped facing onto a large bitumen area with two netball courts and large parkland areas. The old Library was automated in 1995 and a computer laboratory was situated at one end of the library. This layout changed considerably with the Federal Government Grant implementation. A new library was built in 2008 and the old library operated as a classroom and Science Laboratory.

The Department of Education completed the building of an undercover area equipped with a canteen and sports store. The school canteen provides a teaching area for the Catering Program.

The school had an ex air-force hut which was used as a theatre for dance and drama.

In 2019, we were granted Independent Public School (IPS) status, which is a reflection of our inclusive practices and the processes we undertake reflecting on student achievement and our planning for the future.

School Values

At Redcliffe Primary School, we believe every student should have access to as many future options as possible. We want students to have a wide variety of choice when decisions about their future are being made. We believe quality education will help increase these opportunities in the future. We also believe at Redcliffe Primary School we are helping to develop strong civic-minded citizens of the future.
To achieve this, we use a positive behaviour approach to learning and play, plus strong education programs using data, research and cognitive science to guide our educational decision-making. Students and parents will partner with the school, in taking responsibility for being prepared for all learning activities offered.
We believe in whole-school approaches, to ensure students have a consistent set of rules and guidelines that allow them to comfortably make gainful learning experiences through their whole primary school experience. Using a positive rewards program, we have created a safe and supportive environment in which to learn and play.
The staff reflect the behaviours and attitudes we are developing within our school community. Our moral purpose, “All our actions and behaviours are focused on student learning”, is a reflection of our dedication to the individual learning needs to all of our students.
With a large and diverse student body who are from many geographical, cultural and linguistic backgrounds, Redcliffe Primary School reflects the values of acceptance and tolerance.
The four Redcliffe Stars reflect our values:
Stay Safe
Take Responsibility
Act Respectfully
Be Ready to Learn
