About our school

Our public school is located in the inner northern region of Adelaide, South Australia. We have a steady enrolment of about 400 children from Reception through to Year 7. We also have a Preschool, with an enrolment of about 60 children who attend across the week. We celebrate our cultural diversity, with over half of our students holding English as a second language.

The school has a strong peace ethos and holds accreditation by United Nations as a Peace School. Our Peace Code is embedded as part of our learning which is speaking kindly, caring for myself and others, doing the right thing, finding help, turning things around, being brave and being a peacemaker.

Developing literacy and numeracy skills and knowledge is fundamental to learning. We have two main priorities – reading comprehension and student engagement. We are committed to providing opportunities for every student to achieve great things. This website shows some of the high powered learning that takes place at Northfield Primary School.
