The Victorian Government is transforming local education through the Flemington Education Plan.
Development of the plan began in 2018, with a vision for the Flemington community that every child and young person will experience opportunities and pathways that promote educational excellence, health and wellbeing, a sense of belonging and community.
The Flemington Education Plan provides a coordinated approach to ensuring that every child and young person will experience the same high-quality seamless education that fosters positive health and wellbeing, a sense of belonging and community, and the capacity to succeed from early childhood setting into adult pathways beyond secondary school. The Plan celebrates the diversity of its community and the opportunities for inclusion and learning from each other.
The Department is working with four local schools across primary, secondary and specialist education, connecting and supporting them to share their individual expertise and resources and to provide excellent outcomes for every student through collaboration and connection to community.
The schools involved in the plan are:
Teaching and learning components being delivered in this plan include:

What the plan means for you
Whether a student, parent, family member, carer, staff member, educator and/or member of the local community, the plan will benefit you.
The four schools have been working hard to deliver the objectives of the plan. There is more work to be done, and it is an exciting space to be in for the schools and the wider community.
We encourage all community members to be an active voice in the plan. It is a long-term commitment and we need the local community to be involved in the journey to ensure our goals are being met.
