Literate, Numerate, Curious, and Safe

Brunswick East Primary School (BEPS) is a government primary school in the community of Brunswick, an inner suburb of Melbourne, with around 400 students. We have a long and proud history and a progressive vision for our students growing up in 21st Century Australia. BEPS emphasises a developmental approach to learning, with high expectations for all, in a safe learning environment.

At BEPS we value philosophical inquiry, deep thinking, and a sense of curiosity. Children and teachers work together as communities of learners. In fact, our class organisation is based around the idea of multi-aged, flexible Learning Communities.

Our curriculum is differentiated in order to enable personalised learning – we do not believe in a “one size fits all” approach to education. While literacy and numeracy are emphasised in line with the Victorian Curriculum, so are the broader goals of personal and social responsibility, creativity, collaboration, and multi-modal communication. Teachers discuss these goals in their professional learning and team meetings, using a range of supporting documents such as the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework.

At BEPS, we believe that keeping children safe is everyone’s responsibility. We have policies in place to outline the measures and strategies we have in place to support, promote, and maintain the safety and wellbeing of our students:  As valuable partners in promoting and maintaining child safety and wellbeing at Brunswick East Primary School we welcome and encourage your feedback.

If you have any suggestions, comments, or questions about our child safe policies and practices, please contact the Principal at 9387 3361 or

Brunswick East Primary School respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the country, on which BEPS is situated, the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, and we pay our respect to the Elders and ongoing living cultures of First Peoples.
We hope that through our action and ongoing learning, we are able to critically reflect on and develop our ability to be more responsive to the knowledge, skills, and cultural identities of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
