The school is supported by the Country Area Program (CAP) and by the Priority Schools Program (PSP) and National Partnership Low SES funding. These programs provide significant funds toward the development of learning programs which impact on the achievement of student learning outcomes.
The school has strong parental support through the Parents and Citizens Association and the Parent and School Partnership Initiative Committee. The school has a stable staff with most staff members having had over three years at the school. The executive structure of the school comprises one non teaching Principal and two full time teaching Assistant Principals.
The school promotes citizenship and taking responsibility for one's own actions, through its strong anti-bullying, discipline and student leadership programs. The focus of the school is encapsulated in the school motto," In Questa Sapientiae" or, "In Search of Knowledge". Nyngan Public School focuses on learning.
