Paxton Public School

Paxton Public School is located on large grounds in a semi-rural setting, approximately 10km from Cessnock in the Hunter Valley and operates with strong support from the Cessnock Community of Great Public Schools.

Paxton Public School's core values are Safety, Teamwork, Achievement and Respect (STAR) and these values underpin the school's commitment to Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL).

The school's Vision Statement reads: 'Parents, students and teachers all striving for the best by aiming high'. Paxton Public School and its community are committed to providing an educational environment that is aimed at developing students as 21st Century Learners.

Our school maintains a focus on engaging students in the learning process and this includes opportunities for students in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), sport, cooking and Creative and Performing Arts.

We have an established relationship with other small schools in our area and this includes curriculum collaboration, sporting and excursion programs. 

At Paxton Public School, every student has an personalised learning program that targets key areas of learning.

Teachers provide a differentiated program that target these identified areas, ensuring each child's learning experiences are individual and specific to their needs.

We actively engage our parents and community in our school activities and value their contribution to the learning journey of our students and teachers.
