Principals message

The Padbury Primary School community welcomes all parents who will be associated with our vibrant school.  We take pride in our excellent facilities, our openness to new ideas and new people, our quality learning opportunities and our care for our students.

The teachers at Padbury Primary School are well qualified, experienced and dedicated. Teachers are constantly exploring better ways to help your child learn, and value your role as the parent educator.  You can be assured that the children’s best interests are our prime motivation.

The importance of home and school working together to provide children with supportive care throughout their primary schooling cannot be emphasised enough.

At Padbury we work hard to provide a high quality education for every child. But we can’t do it alone. We encourage you to be involved in the work of our school, in the classroom, at P&C meetings, helping in the canteen, the School Council and at home with your child.  Research clearly shows that parent and community involvement in schools improves student achievement. To reach their potential, students need parents and the community to take an active role in their education.

This website will assist parents about the way Padbury Primary School operates but please feel free to contact us if you wish to know more.  Your child’s teacher or our friendly office staff can answer most of your questions or concerns.
