The State Government wants to find out if the community supports the junior and primary school combining as one school. Westminster Junior Primary School.
Westminster Primary School and Westminster Education Support Centre are located on the one site in Westminster, but are three separate schools.
The students from Westminster Junior Primary School (Kindergarten to Year 3) currently need to enrol at Westminster Primary School or another school for Years 4 to 6. These are the only remaining public schools operating like this.
The preferred model of primary schooling in Western Australian public schools is Kindergarten to Year 6. A Kindergarten to Year 6 school removes the need for students to change schools and allows continuity of their learning through the primary school.
Westminster Education Support Centre enrols students from Kindergarten to Year 6 and wishes to continue as a separate school.
