School Values

Miles Franklin provides a quality learning environment. Our students learn to be confident, resilient, risk takers and lifelong learners.

To achieve this purpose we provide education that is child centered, promoting the holistic development of each child. The goal of Miles Franklin is to provide an excellent education, which assists students to develop their talents and capacities. A dedicated team of teachers work diligently to help students achieve high standards of learning and develop self-confidence, optimism, self-esteem and respect. Strong partnerships with parents and carers are valued so student needs can be met in the best possible ways.

The school, with nearly 70% of its enrolment from outside its priority enrolment area, attracts students from over 20 different suburbs. The student community includes those with English as a bilingual or second language, Indigenous, Special Needs, Gifted and Talented and Learning Assisted children.

The school's motto of 'Achieving Educational Excellence in a Caring Environment' is further articulated through our vision and mission statements developed through consultation with the school community:


To be a globally-minded community of inquiring, compassionate and lifelong learners


To recognise, value and celebrate the academic and social needs of every student. Working collaboratively and respectfully we will enrich the learning of all students.
