Welcome to Winters Flat Primary School

Welcome to Winters Flat Primary School and our vibrant school community.

Our school is located on the Western edge of Castlemaine, in a leafy, private, low traffic environment. Our expansive grounds include large playing areas, a fitness track, an oval and two playgrounds.

Achieving success together

We aim to create an inclusive school community where students develop the academic, physical, social, emotional, creative and moral skills that are the foundation for success in life. We celebrate diversity and promote a deep respect for the environment and for each other.

Promoting literacy and numeracy achievement

Students are the central focus in our learning community. We offer a broad Prep to Grade 6 curriculum underpinned by the Victorian Curriculum.
We organise teaching staff in teams – Junior, Middle, Senior and Specialists. Home group programs are supported by specialist classes in art and physical education (P-6), as well as the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden program for students in Grades 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.

Sustainability and indigenous education

We are rated a 5-star Resource Smart school, and won numerous awards for our sustainability initiatives. We enjoy strong partnerships with our local indigenous community. Students join a ‘Welcome to Country’ ceremony each year, and our Koorie students take part in the ‘Meeting Place’ indigenous education program.

Student welfare and voice

Our pupil welfare and behaviour management plan is underpinned by the philosophies of the Positive Behaviour Support Program. Student Leadership is a feature of our school, and we encourage and support our student voice to be heard through an extensive program involving Community Leaders, Curriculum Leaders, Health Leaders and Koorie and Cultural Leaders.
