Flemington Primary School was established in the current buildings and location 1922, and is situated in the quiet residential area of Travancore   in inner Melbourne.   The school is set back from Mount Alexander Road behind majestic, heritage cast iron gates and the school oval, and is bounded by the laneway, Flemington Street, Cashmere and Mangalore Streets and the Royal Children's Hospital Mental Health Unit.

Situated in spacious grounds, the main red brick building overlooks a pleasant tree and shaded courtyard flanked by a number of other buildings.   The current student enrolment is 474 students with the majority of our students drawn from the immediate localites and the local government area of Moonee Valley.

Our guiding philosophy  is based on equity of access and high expectations that all children will learn and achieve their full potential.  We anticipate that all children will  leave Flemington Primary School with a  love of learning, a strong sense of  self-worth, confidence, independence,  risk-taking skills and self-discipline.  High expectations for learning and behaviour are linked to respect for the rights and  responsibilities of all members of our community.  

Interwoven with this philosophy and aims are  the school values of Be Safe, Be Kind, Be Respectful and Be Ready to Learn with the overarching goal of BE YOUR BEST!
