About our school

Strategic Improvement Plan

We have developed a Strategic Improvement Plan (SIP) in consultation with our community, identifying student outcomes and connected to a budget.

The School Excellence Framework (SEF) underpins our school planning and reporting approach. The framework provides a clear description of the key elements of high-quality practice across learning, teaching and leading.

The SIP is a working document that details the steps our school will take to improve learning outcomes, and the achievement and growth of all students. To ensure continuous improvement, the SIP reflects where our school is at and how it will further improve learning, teaching and leading.  

It demonstrates our alignment and our commitment to excellence as part of public education in NSW to ensure a profound difference to the ongoing growth and development of our students.

Principal's Message


Wilkins Public School is a modern and well-equipped primary school located in Sydney's Inner West. We have a strong commitment to excellence in teaching and learning to assist all students to reach their full potential.

Our school enjoys large, leafy and varied playing areas, an assembly hall which doubles as a gymnasium, and a well-resourced library and technology room. Our school has a strong community culture and an active P & C, and is enriched by the diverse cultural backgrounds of our students. We also have Out of School Hours Care (including holiday care) onsite.

Our enrichment and extra-curricular programs are central to our ambition to provide a rich, rewarding school experience. Wilkins Green is a remarkable asset, and underpins our outdoor learning. The arts are highly-valued at Wilkins Public School. We have a state-of-the-art kiln, multiple choirs, well-supported school bands and ensembles and a dedicated music program. We also offer opportunities to be involved in gymnastics, dance, chess and filmaking.

Our core values are consideration, care and courage. We have high expectations for all children and provide holistic, structured care and support at the welfare, curriculum, community and relationships levels. We believe consultation and collaboration between staff, community and students furthers the success of Wilkins Public School.
