Jenny Duggan

Principal

I would like to personally welcome you to Fountain Gate Primary School. 

I trust that your child’s educational journey will be rewarding and successful. We have a strong emphasis on children’s safety and happiness, and a concerted effort is made to ensure that each child achieves to the best of their ability, especially in the “basics” of Literacy and Numeracy. The core purpose of a Primary School is to be the bridge from the home into the wider world, and to foster the skills, knowledge and attitudes that will help children succeed now and into the future. 


Fountain Gate Primary School has excellent facilities and resources, but most importantly it has a very dedicated staff who know each child as an individual, and strive to create conditions where each child will thrive. We value partnerships with parents, grandparents and carers, and encourage you to stay in contact with us regarding your child’s progress and wellbeing.


The Primary School years are very special in the life of a child. The foundations that we build together, will have a profound influence on them as learners and as people. Welcome!

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A PREP

What do Preps do at school? What do the classrooms look like? What specialists are there? What time do they eat?

This video was designed to answer all of these questions and more! The Prep Teachers wrote down everything that Preps do in a day, and then we went around and filmed it all so that you could see! Click the link below to watch the video, we're really proud of it!

Bullying Prevention Policy

We have a very harmonious environment at Fountain Gate Primary School, but we won't say we've never had to tackle the issue of bullying. We take bullying very seriously here, and have protocols and procedures in place to effectively deal with it and ensure it is followed up regularly.

QKR Parent Guide

FGPS is a cashless school. While we use compass for most payments and fees, our Canteen operates through the QKR app. This guide explains how to install and find our school, as well as add your payment details so that you can order tasty lunches for your child right from your phone!

Wellbeing Policy

Developed in conjunction with the Bullying Prevention Policy, our Wellbeing Policy fosters a supportive and cooperative environment where students can be independent, optimistic and supportive, among many other things.

Parent Compass Guide

Compass is our way of communicating with parents, and also letting you communicate with your child's teacher. 
Among other things, you can view your child's report, pay for excursions, submit attendance notes and even update your personal details if you move or get a new phone number.

Here are some things you can do with your child to help them get excited for school!
