Welcome to Shelford Primary School

Shelford Primary School aims to provide the very best education possible for our students in a safe, secure and happy environment. School staff, parents, students and community, work together to develop broad thinkers who can apply their skills, attitudes, values and knowledge in a changing world.

Shelford Primary was established in 1866, and is located in the rural township of Shelford, 40 km from Geelong.

We understand that the best outcomes are achieved when there is a strong relationship between home and school. As such, the school seeks to maintain a strong sense of community through an ‘open door’ policy, good communication, and whole school and community events which build the connection between parents, teachers and classrooms.

Shelford Primary School strives to provide a welcoming, inclusive and safe learning environment where all children feel they belong. We seek to meet the needs of all students, including their learning, social and emotional needs.

Shelford Primary offers all students a diverse range of programs and activities including:

  • Fortnightly MARC Van program
  • Library resources provided by MARC Van
  • Writer’s Notebook program
  • Weekly Science lessons
  • Daily physical activity, and weekly Health and PE lessons
