Who are we?

big horizons.

little school.

Country school.

Lancefield Primary School, established in 1858, is situated in the semi-rural township of Lancefield, sixty seven kilometres north of Melbourne in the Macedon Ranges. Residential areas are developed alongside a rural farming existence. Our student enrolment is approximately 160 students. We have supportive parents, families and community groups who contribute to the wellbeing of our school by assisting with the maintenance of the grounds, classroom programs, whole school activities and the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program. We are a School Wide Positive Behaviour School with a strong focus on mental/social/emotional wellbeing for all. The implementation and explicit teaching of the You Can Do It program, Berry Street Education Model and RRRR provides our students, staff and families with strong social/emotional wellbeing and mental health support and strategies. We are an inclusive school and make reasonable adjustments to ensure all students are supported in reaching their full potential. Student leadership is encouraged and promoted through year 6 student leaders, student council and junior and senior green teams, river detectives and the chook team. All of our students are supported with their learning through our ICT program with years 3-6 participating in the bring your own chromebook program.


The High Impact Teaching Strategies (HITS) and Practice Principles provide direction for our teaching practice with a strong focus on improving numeracy and literacy outcomes. Our teachers work collaboratively to plan and implement programs such as Jolly Phonics and  the Seven Steps Writing program. Our current specialist classes are Visual Arts, Music and Physical Education. Indonesian lessons are taught by classroom teachers. Extra-curricular activities include excursions, incursions, camps, choir, an instrumental program (keyboard and guitar) and participation in district sporting events.


We have a strong focus on sustainability across all we do at LPS.  We are now proudly part of the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program which provides a range of academic, social/emotional benefits to all of our students. Our new learning space developed throughout 2019 (the Wil-e-mee Moor-ing centre) incorporates a four station SAKG kitchen area, library and science area. Our vegetable garden beds are continually tended to by students and parent garden group.
