About our school

Mayfield East Public School is a dynamic school situated approximately 6km from Newcastle. Established in 1858, it has a long and proud tradition of strong community support, with an active and supportive Parents and Citizens’ Association. The school nurtures a sense of belonging and involvement, where success across academic, social and emotional arenas is celebrated, and we are proud of the wide range of extra-curricular and cultural activities offered to students to broaden their horizons. 

Currently the school has an enrolment of 295 students, of which 7% identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander and 5% have a Language Background Other Than English. The staff is a mix of early career and highly experienced teachers, all with a wide range of skills, and both staff and parents hold high expectations for our students.

Our school is committed to building consistent, high quality educational practices using evidence-based research to develop a future-focused mindset, including teaching in flexible learning spaces with an emphasis on 21st Century learner qualities. There is strong integration of technology in the curriculum. The school is currently building a solid grounding in coding, robotics and STEM/STEAM programs.

Student wellbeing is also a strong focus, building self-awareness and care to help our students to reach their full potential. Our Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden is a key feature of our school, where our students learn sustainable and healthy living habits.

Mayfield East Public School is a proud member of Callaghan Education Pathways and the Muloobinbah AECG; we work collaboratively with our learning community to maximise opportunities for our students.
