We offer outstanding Visual Arts, Performing Arts, Physical Education and Sports programs. Our relationships are based on Respect for Self, Respect for Others and Respect for the Environment.
At Mansfield Steiner we value the traditional Steiner School practice of having one teacher accompany the children through their Primary School years. Over this extended period the teacher and children develop a meaningful relationship that fosters an environment of trust and security within which the child can relax into their learning. Teachers really come to know each child and as such are better able to meet their individual needs and honour and support their unique learning and developmental journey.
Jamieson Primary School operates as a multi aged school from prep to Grade 6. Classes are grouped from prep to Grade 2 , and Grades 3 to 6 as the seniors students. Students work together on tasks with senior students often acting as cross-age tutors, encouraging communication skills.
The class sizes are typically small so teacher to student ratio is advantageous to the student, allowing students to progress at their own rate.
