Students at Quinns Beach Primary School are encouraged to use their ‘smarts’ and be ‘proud’ at school. Staff continue to develop their professional knowledge in a collaborative and team environment. Classes are structured in phases of learning including the early years housed in Djeran and Kambarang, the middle years housed in Birak and the senior years housed in Makuru.
QBPS is aligned to the Western Australian Department of Education and as such utilises the core values of equity, excellence and care, together with the shared beliefs, as the basis for decision making. It reflects to content taught in the Western Australia curriculum.

Our Great Collaborative Team
A culture of review and reflection is evident in our school processes with monitoring and support to respond to identified student needs are embedded feature of our School Plan. This results in:
An evidenced based approach to all aspects of operational and strategic planning that values and builds on successful practice in the school.
Our Student Needs
A strong inclusive education focus supports and ‘wraps around’ students at educational risk ( SAER) and the social and emotional needs and development of each child in the school. A comprehensive case management approach caters for students with specific learning needs and difficulties.
A feature of the school’s general approach is the development of ‘wrap around’ monitoring and methodology to address non- academic areas of student performance- particularly for attendance.
