Welcome to Rangebank
Principal team message
Rangebank is a medium sized school of just under 400 students, located in Cranbourne, in the South East of Melbourne. Our community has a strong and proud connection to the area. At Rangebank, we are proud to be home to many cultures. We are proud to be the first state primary school in Australia to teach Hindi from foundation to grade 6. Further to this, Rangebank has a strong connection to India and a sister school in Delhi that we visit one year and host the next year.
Following a review in 2019, Rangebank has set a clear plan for continued growth and improvement. This focus on growth and improvement encompasses all parts of the school; academic excellence, supporting student wellbeing, creating a beautiful environment and strong community relationships. Underpinning all of these are the shared values we have developed with our community:
Be Respectful - look after people and property
Be Safe - protect yourself and others
Be Kind - be friendly and considerate to others
Be a learner - Motivated and try your best
At Rangebank, we focus on positive behaviours and celebrate those who display our values. We do this because we know when we are being respectful, safe, kind and being learners, we are being the best we can be as individuals and a whole school community. Our whole school agreed values are visible, lived and celebrated.
Rangebank has worked hard in the last 18 months to invest in our staff. Research has continually shown, one of the most important factors to improving student outcomes is the teacher. We have a strong focus on professional learning and have developed cohesive teams across the school to ensure we are providing a quality, consistent and differentiated curriculum that is inclusive of the needs of all students. Our teaching and learning team is led by an Assistant Principal and includes 2 Learning Specialists who are continually focused on improving the quality of teaching and learning in our school.
At Rangebank, we understand the importance of preparing students to be ready to learn. We focus on creating a safe and orderly learning environment with flexible learning spaces in the classroom to support students to self regulate. We also have a strong focus on wellbeing through our wellbeing team approach. This team is led by an Assistant Principal and includes a youth worker, psychologist and Primary Welfare officer. They work closely with families to support students as well as providing outreach for families when needed.
We are very proud of our school and the warm and welcoming environment we have all worked hard to create. We hope to see you soon and encourage you to book a tour with one of our team to learn more about our wonderful school.
