About our school

Normanhurst West Public School is an important part of an established residential area which places great emphasis on the importance of providing a friendly, safe and secure environment with a strong community focus.

Parents value the school's commitment to high educational standards and the opportunities offered for students to participate in a wide range of cultural and sporting activities. The community recognises the value of the school's green park-like setting and is committed to maintaining a physical environment conducive to an effective learning atmosphere.

Normanhurst West Public School believes the following essential values are necessary if it is to achieve excellent outcomes in a positive, motivating and caring environment.

Each student is individual, important and best motivated in a positive caring environment where active participation, appropriate incentives and recognition of achievement develop self-esteem. Parents and teachers are essential partners in the ongoing education of their children. A relationship of mutual interest, support and cooperation is essential.


Early Intervention Support Class

At Normanhurst West Public School, we have an Early Intervention Support Class that caters for children with a diagnosed disability before they start school. This program provides children with an individualised program that supports their learning and development of functional skills required for school.

Children enrolled in the Early Intervention support class usually attend for 2.5 hour sessions from 9:30am to 12pm two days a week. Class sizes vary from 5 to 7 children aged between four to six years of age.

If your child attends the Early Intervention Support class, it is recommended that they also attend a mainstream early childhood education program such as a preschool or childcare centre. Supporting successful inclusion for your child is an important focus of the Early Intervention Program.

If you believe your child would benefit from attending the Early Intervention support class, contact your local public school. They will be able to advise you on the application process. Enrolment in the Early Intervention Support Class is allocated through a formal Access Request process, submitted by your local school, after consultation with you and the school counsellor.
