Bidwill Public School is a large, well appointed school which is unique in that it shares a spacious and attractive campus with a high school and a preschool.
Most students live within easy walking distance of the school. The school provides a caring, supportive learning environment and programs that emphasise the development of positive attitudes to learning.
Throughout the curriculum, priority is given to: The acquisition of language, literacy and numeracy skills; the welfare of students; the development of social skills necessary to learn, work and play cooperatively; and the importance of accepting responsibility for one's own actions and learning.
Literacy programs such as Accelerated Literacy and Reading Recovery are a major feature of the school curriculum. Specialist support staff work with class teachers to support students at all stages of development. Emphasis is placed on early intervention and Positive Behaviour for Learning underlies Student Welfare practices.
