About our school

Casino Primary School is located on the North Coast of NSW in an urban based municipality that is entirely surrounded by a rural shire. The school is situated within 500 metres of the town centre, within easy walking distance to the swimming pool, parks, the town library, sporting fields and the Heritage Society museum. The school was established in 1861. Over 60% of students travel to the school by public transport and only 15% are within walking distance of the school. In addition to regular classes Casino Primary School has a Support Unit and a Preschool.

Casino Public School is a Preschool to Year 6 primary school. The students are from diverse backgrounds with a wide range of abilities and achievements represented in each year group. Aboriginal students represent 24% of enrolments. The Special Education Support Unit is made up of a moderate intellectual disability (IM) class and three autism and/or moderate intellectual support classes. The school is organised into five teams, four stage teams and the Support Unit team. Each team is led by an Assistant Principal with the support of a Deputy Principal, an Instructional Leader and the Principal.

The school is a member of the Hub of Summerland Learning Community of Schools which also includes Casino West Public School and Casino High School. As a community of schools we have embraced the Stronger Smarter Institute's philosophy and way of thinking in developing relationships and connections within and across our schools and community, such as the Casino Aboriginal Education Consultative Group. We aim to grow the relationships and connections being developed in the Casino community that are supporting high expectations for our students.

Our school culture is one of high expectations for achievement, a shared sense of responsibility for student engagement, learning development and success. Positive respectful relationships underpin productive learning environments that support students in setting their learning goals and using success criteria to assess their own learning. Expectations are formed around the syllabus outcomes, the learning capabilities of the individual child and the school's values.

Evidence based reflective learning conversations are eliciting continuity of learning by enabling students in creative thinking and problem solving. We are growing the collective capacity of parents and staff to work together in the pursuit of providing high quality educational opportunities for each and every student.
