Seaford Park Primary School is nestled between a residential and green wedge between the Peninsula Link to the west and Frankston-Dandenong Road to the east. Most students are from the local area but also come from Carrum Downs. The 2019 enrolment is 161 and Student Family Occupation is 0.61.
The school is a completely new permanent building with a unique architecturally designed layout, set in appealing and spacious grounds that complement the indoor-outdoor learning spaces. All learning areas flow from a spacious central community space, and have been purpose built to support teachers to work in a collaborative fashion in order to best meet the needs of our children.

A whole school approach exists for the teaching of Literacy and Numeracy. This allows students to acquire key knowledge and skills no matter the configuration of our class structure. Teaching priorities include the implementation of the CAFE Reading program and Daily Five. The school also has a structured Writing Program with a host of resources, enabling the nine genres of writing to be explicitly taught throughout the school. The timetable is structured to prioritise the morning sessions for Literacy (two hours) and Numeracy (one hour) learning. Most Specialist classes are therefore scheduled in the afternoon.
