The school has a healthy balance of male and female teachers. The school has a genuinely bright and positive atmosphere. With more than 120 years of history behind it, Lower Plenty is large enough to be able to provide comprehensive programs yet small enough to provide more personal care, attention and valuing of the individual. Students are able to experience things they may not have the opportunity to at larger schools.
The school offers a challenging, comprehensive and relevant curriculum to all our students in the Key Learning Areas of English, Mathematics, Science, ICT, Studies of Society and the Environment, Health and Physical Education and The Arts (Music, Visual Arts and Drama). Our Educational program has a major emphasis of sound foundations in Literacy and Numeracy skills. Specialist programs are provided for Music, Visual Arts and Physical Education. Additional programs include Reading Intervention, School Rock Band, Choir, Music Technology, Performing Arts Concerts, Music Keyboard, Guitar, Tennis and Soccer lessons, Buddy Program, Cross-Age Tutoring, Religious Education, Interschool Sport, Swimming, PMP, Chess Program and a Camping Program(P-6).

Steeped in history, Lower Plenty Primary School is one of the popular school in the Lower Plenty area. Our aim is clear and present in all aspects of the school. Respect, Compassion and Resilience are some of the qualities demonstrated towards the personal attributes we strive to gain and display in our community.
We endeavour to celebrate each other’s uniqueness by providing opportunity for all and to develop a culture that identifies that the journey towards excellence is often paved with trial and error, risk taking, learning from mistakes, flexibility and adaptability. We believe that encouraging students to take ownership of the learning is critical in achieving the best learning outcomes and that implicit in this concept is that students learn their own areas of strength and areas of development, through useful and explicit feedback.
