NSW Department of Education
Sydney Distance Education Primary School is a global leader in providing high quality and innovative distance education to primary school students. We enrol NSW students from public and independent schools who are temporarily unable to attend their local school for a variety of circumstances. Our differentiated and adaptable approach to learning makes the school ideal for families travelling in Australia and around the world. The SDEPS teaching program provides students with an excellent opportunity to enhance their education during their extended absence. Our highly qualified teachers cater for all students’ learning needs through personalised learning programs. We create highly engaging and innovative learning materials aligned to NESA Syllabuses. Students are provided with individualised support, as well as given opportunities for collaboration through our online lessons and peer to peer interaction.

I have really appreciated all that SDEPS has done for our family over the years and I will be really sad to move on. It has been such a great privilege to have you all in our lives over the past few years and I've really appreciated all the talent and hard work that it has been for you all.

I just wanted to thank everyone for the amazing opportunity and experience long distance has given us and I can see how it has really helped Claudia build confidence as well as really focusing on some areas she was struggling with. Many thanks.
