We ensure that there is a continuous and robust curriculum across the school to meet the needs of students in each year level and area. All members of staff at Coburn Primary School actively work to develop their professional capacity to provide the best possible education for our students. As a result of intensive professional learning, we have developed a consistent and coherent whole-school approach to the teaching of literacy and numeracy, how our professional learning teams operate and a whole school assessment schedule.
The Coburn School Community has identified the following school values:

Our school is structured with straight grades from Prep to Year Six, this is to enable staff to work collaboratively in professional learning teams. This restructure enables us to enhance and support this way of operating.

We have targeted intervention programs in Literacy and Numeracy operating across the school and are seeing outstanding results from these. There is a strong focus on values education and a School Wide Positive Behaviour approach in place.
