Staff at Erasmus Primary School provide for a wide range of curriculum programs and learning experiences that support the academic and social development of students.

The Principal is responsible for daily management of the school including appointment of staff, formulation of the curriculum and teaching.  He works with the Senior Management Team to lead a group of experienced and dedicated teachers and administrative staff who have extensive local and international experience.  All teachers are registered with the Victorian Institute of Teaching.  Some teachers are students of Melbourne School of Philosophy, and all teachers participate in philosophy education on a weekly basis.  Staff also undertake internal and external professional development and training, and utilise advisory services provided by Independent Schools Victoria and other providers.
