Essendon North Primary School

At Essendon North Primary School, our vision is to be ‘Global learners and leaders, exceeding expectations.’ Our mission is  ‘We maximise the potential of all; empowering independence, excellence, innovation and critical engagement with the world.’ We believe in our Guiding Statements, and as a learning community, are committed to embedding these within the fabric of our school. We are Brave, Bold, Connected.

Essendon North Primary School has received international accreditation with the Council of International Schools (CIS). The CIS is a world wide organisation, and our school is part of a genuinely international and non-nationally-affiliated community of schools. We are committed to achieving international standards of educational excellence for all our students. The CIS provides our school and community with an international framework for school improvement. For further information about the CIS, visit

Essendon North Primary School is also a candidate school* for the Primary Years Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Essendon North Primary School believes is important for our students.

*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its three academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), or the Diploma Programme (and in addition the IB Career-related Certificate). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
