Welcome to Byford Primary School

The town of Byford is ten kilometres south of Armadale on the South Western Highway and is located in a semi rural/urban community in the Shire of Serpentine-Jarrahdale.

Our School

Byford Primary School was successful with their application to become an Independent Public School at the commencement of 2015.

Byford Primary School is a school with a long history - the first classrooms being built on this site in 1921, it has grown to accommodate over 300 students and also has a community kindergarten at Park Road Kindy. Byford school students are respectful, eager to learn, friendly and cooperative, concerned for others and keen to succeed.

Parental involvement is strongly encouraged throughout the school and includes coaching sporting teams, organising resources, assisting children with writing and mathematics, supervising group activities, attending excursions, organising and helping at busy bees, supporting the canteen and participating in the Learning Assistance Program.

Stickers can be dropped into a collection box which will be located in the office or at your Armadale Woolworths. Sticker sheets are available from the school or online from the Earn and Learn website. 
THANK YOU AGAIN FOR YOUR ONGOING FUNDRAISING SPIRIT

Byford Community Kindy Relocation

From Monday 21 August 2017, students and staff from Byford Community Kindergarten are temporarily relocating to our school site.

The relocation follows a bushfire risk assessment of the Byford Community Kindergarten site that found the bushfire hazard for that site is extreme. The assessment identified that even if vegetation was removed from a 20 metre perimeter around the buildings, the fire risk for the site would remain extreme. With safety of children and staff the top priority, the Department of Education has determined that the continued use of the site would not be safe.

While the Community Kindergarten committee looks for a new location, we will be housing their students and staff on our site.

Please join us in welcoming Byford Community Kindergarten students, staff and parents to our site.
