A 52-year-old woman who was driving a vehicle which slammed into a Sydney primary school, killing two 8-year-old boys, has been charged with risky driving occasioning death and negligent driving.

At approximately 9.45am, a Toyota Kluger crashed into a demountable classroom at Banskia Road Public School, Greenacre in Sydney's south-west.

Authorities described the scene as "carnage" as paramedics and police responded and parents rushed to the site. Police say they do not believe the crash was intentional.

"(Students) were screaming, saying they wanted their mum, I want help", she said.

Eyewitnesses reportedly told police that the woman appeared to have lost control while driving out of the school.

Two chaplains were brought in to support paramedics and the victims. "She wouldn't have got to see him before he died", he said.

The school was also visited yesterday by the NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian, who offered her sympathy and condolences.

Student Mariam Issmail told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation that she saw a teacher faint after the crash, while others loaded children into ambulances.

Those two young boys later died in hospital.

"Everything went blank", she said.

Her licence has been suspended and she was granted conditional bail ahead of an appearance at Bankstown Local Court on November 29.

"Obviously they were crying, they were distressed, some were asking for their parents, that's a natural response in such a awful set of circumstances".

NSW Ambulance superintendent Stephanie Radnidge said children were very distressed after the crash.

"It is very, very hard because we are parents ourselves, we are human beings", she added.

Dozens of parents frantically searched for information at police barricades as roads around the school were closed down throughout Tuesday.

Frantic parents have rushed to the school to collect children and check on their welfare.

At least 18 children were assessed at the scene as well as one adult.
