A-Z Parent Information


Learning Support and Enrichment

Learning support is available for students in need of extra support in literacy and numeracy. Small group and individual assistance is available based on teacher assessment and referral. Support for students with English as an additional language or dialect (EALD) is also available. A variety of programs are available to students to enrich their school experiences.

Parents should speak to the classroom teacher, school psychologist or a member of the Executive Team about concerns regarding the learning or social development of their child.

Leaving the School Premises

Students are not permitted to leave the school grounds during the day without being collected by a parent or carer.

If your child is required to leave the school between 8.50am and 3.00pm please notify the school in writing. Students must be collected and signed out at the front office before leaving the school.

Liaison with Preschool and High School

It is very important to recognise that developmental learning is an on-going process and it is vital that effective liaison between the Preschool and the Primary School and the Primary School and the High School is maintained.

Regular, open communication with, and visits between the Preschool and High Schools is an integral part of Chapman Primary School's efforts in this area.


Chapman Primary School Library and Resource Centre is available to all students who visit in class groups, once a week to borrow books that they can take home. Our borrowing system is a user friendly fully automated computer program which offers student the ability to research, locate and borrow books themselves.

Ebooks can also be used through our library system by entering individual students school username and log-in.  Please speak with your child's teacher or email chapman.info@ed.act.edu.au for further information.

Lost Property

At Chapman Primary School we strongly encourage children to take responsibility for their own belongings at all times, however we do understand that in the busy school day, jumpers, hats and lunchboxes can easily be left behind.  These items will most usually make their way to our school lost property area.

The Lost Property area at Chapman Primary School is located at the front of the school in the corridor next to our executive offices.

To support us in keeping lost property to a minimum, it is important that you ensure all items brought to school are clearly labelled with your child's name including clothing which is removable (jumpers, jackets and hats), lunchboxes and drink bottles, library bags, school bags, umbrellas and other personal items.

Students have access to lost property at any time during the school day. If your child forgets to check for a lost item please email the school on chapmanps.info@ed.act.edu with a brief description of the lost item.  Staff will check lost property as soon as is possible, return the located item to your child and/or advise you of the outcome.

Students SHOULD NOT to bring and precious personal items to school such as money, jewellery or toys as the loss of these can be very upsetting.


We encourage you to provide a healthy lunch for your child in a named lunch box. Please keep packaging and wraps to a minimum. For more information, please refer to the canteen menu.
