The suburb of Laverton is 21 kilometers west of Melbourne and for many years served members of the Laverton RAAF base. Laverton P-12 College commenced in 2008 and the school buildings and grounds are modern, well- resourced and inviting, which compliments the rigorous teaching and learning opportunities we provide.
In 2018, the school’s student enrolment was 711 students across Foundation to Year 12. The school has a Student Family Occupation and Education (SFOE) of 0.6525. The SFOE is an indicator of circumstances known to make a difference in student learning.
The school has a diverse multicultural student population, with a significant number of our students coming from the Karen and Pacific Islander Communities.
Over the course of the 2014-2018 Strategic plan, there has been a focus on building the capacity of all staff to deliver high quality teaching and learning programs. Moving forward into the 2018-2022 Strategic Plan, our goals are aligned to continue with this focus, with an increased priority of meeting the learning needs of all of our students, particularly in relation to Reading, Writing and Numeracy. Goal One in the Strategic Plan will be to improve student learning outcomes in Literacy and Numeracy for all students across the P-12 College. Goal Two will be to build a learning culture of high expectations that empowers both students and staff. Goal Three will be to improve student voice, agency, engagement and leadership, in an environment of high expectations and challenge, across the college.
