Lower Plenty Primary – An Education That Lasts A Liftetime

At Lower plenty Primary we develop the whole child by providing a comprehensive education cultivating independent thought and foundational skills as well as awareness of their environment; empathy for others; social ease and confidence.

We don’t run scheduled tour dates and times, we are open every day for families to come in and tour the school.  This way you know that what we provide is the same every day, not just a one off show.

  • If providing a child centred Montessori Inclusive pedagogy and curriculum is what you are looking for, then we could be the school for you and your family.
  • If a small community school where children and families experience a sense of belonging is what you are looking for, then we could be the school for you and your family.
  • If a progressive school with an early 8:15 start, linked to when children learn best is what you are looking for, then we could be the school for you and your family.
  • If a school where your child will be supported and extended to achieve outstanding academic results is what you are looking for, then we could be the school for you and your family.

We are open every day for tours and to meet families, so come see what makes us different and whether we are the right fit for you and your family.

Our the school runs from 8:15 to 2:45.
We have free breakfast club from 7:30am and then after school care from 2:45 to 6:00.

Meet our Teachers

It’s no real secret that the quality of a school is largely influenced by the quality of the staff. We are so fortunate to have a rich diversity of talent, experience, enthusiasm and energy and our teachers truly care. They care for your children and they want nothing more than the best for them. We also believe teaching children is NOT only done at school. We strive hard to build partnerships with you – our parents. It’s what makes us who we are.


So many reasons – not enough time!
But here are a few highlights in under a minute!

A Word From Our Parents


Lower Plenty has taught my son not only about academics but also so much about himself. The school model allows him to explore his thoughts and ideas– through both successes and failures – pushing him beyond his own preset boundaries. The teachers celebrate his successes and steadfastly stand by his side with support when it is needed. It’s a wonderful environment to grow in.
