About Birmingham Primary School
Welcome to Birmingham Primary School, my name is Trish Enzinger, and I have been the Principal here at Birmingham for the past ten years. I have loved every minute of it!
Our school is a large school, our student population has been around the 655 mark for the past three years. The school has a wonderful community feel for such a large school and we have many whole school and community activities. Our grounds are well maintained and there is a range of playground equipment, hard courts and passive areas for the children to access during recess and lunchtimes. We also have on offer a variety of lunchtime activities for the students.
Our school’s vision is to have every student achieving their full potential, and that all students are actively engaged in their learning. We promote the value of respect throughout the whole school community – respect between students, teachers and parents. At Birmingham, we value each other.
Birmingham is a great school, and I am very proud of what we have to offer students. We are serious about what we do, and every child’s educational needs are important to us.
Please take time to explore our website, and do not hesitate to call us with any questions you may have. I enjoy speaking with parents and I enjoy showcasing our school, as the students are always engaged in their learning, and the teachers provide a very stimulating program. Learning should be relevant, exciting and fun, and I believe it is all of these at Birmingham Primary School.

Child Safe Standards
The Victorian Government is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people.
As part of the Victorian Government’s commitment to implementing the recommendations of the Betrayal of Trust report, there is a new regulatory landscape surrounding child safety, underpinned by new Child Safe Standards.
The Child Safe Standards are compulsory minimum standards for all Victorian schools, to ensure they are well prepared to protect children from abuse and neglect.
To create and maintain a child safe organisation, an entity to which the Child Safe Standards apply must have:
strategies to embed an organisational culture of child safety, including through effective leadership arrangements
a child safe policy or statement of commitment to child safety
a code of conduct that establishes clear expectations for appropriate behaviour with children
screening, supervision, training and other human resources practices that reduce the risk of child abuse by new and existing personnel
processes for responding to and reporting suspected child abuse
strategies to identify and reduce or remove risks of child abuse
strategies to promote the participation and empowerment of children.
