About our school

Our School Context

Warwick Farm Public School is a small, culturally diverse government public school in South Western Sydney with approximately 205 students. Our community is transient as indicated by a high mobility rate and our families represent over 40 nationalities. 5.2% of our students identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander and 78% of our students come from families identified as having a Language Background other than English.

Our school shares a multipurpose hall and a sporting field with Mainsbridge School. A conscientious effort is made by both schools to provide opportunities for students to integrate and be part of joint celebrations.

The school currently has nine stage-based classes taught by a mix of early career and experienced staff members who are focused on delivering student focused evidence-based teaching programs to improve student learning outcomes. We have a small number of specialist teachers at the school to cater for the broad range of needs within our community. These teachers include an English as an Additional Language or Dialect (EAL/D) and a Learning and Support Teacher. The school executive team consists of 1.2 Assistant Principals, Curriculum and Instruction, two Assistant Principals and an Assistant Principal, Learning and Support. The school is also the base for the Liverpool Vision Team and the Senior School Psychologist.

The school has strong community connections. We collaborate with other schools through our learning alliance with Liverpool Hospital School and our Early Adopter K-2 Literacy and Numeracy schools. We support our students through working with community organisations such as Liverpool Neighbourhood Connections and Dignity. All stakeholders contribute and strive towards achieving our school vision.

The school has a Family Occupation and Education Index of 133 and an Index of Community Socio-Educational Advantage of 968. The school uses its equity funding to support a diverse range of student needs, both through staffing allocation such as an Assistant Principal, Learning and Support and specialist programs such as speech thearpy and Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT).

As a result of a rigorous Situational Analysis and community consultation, the school has identified that the focus for our 2021-24 Strategic Improvement Plan centres around:

  1. Improvement through Student Attainment and Growth. Through collaboration and using data informed practices, we will achieve at or above system and school negotiated targets, in terms of student achievement.
  2. Improvement through Strong Relationships. Through our 'belonging' initiatives we will strengthen our community partnerships, family engagement and student connectedness to the school. We will also provide targeted strategies to grow student self-efficacy and self-regulation.
  3. Improvement through Effective Practices. Through our narrow and deep focus on quality teaching practices and expertise and innovation, we will ensure that our improvement measures are met across the 2021-24 Strategic Improvement Plan.
