Message from our Principal

Ms Leah Clegg

At Padbury Primary School our vision is to provide a supportive environment that challenges students to achieve personal excellence in all endeavours, whilst being active citizens of the local and global community. We believe every child’s learning is encapsulated in a balance of rewarding intellectual, physical, emotional and relational opportunities. The staff work collaboratively to provide high quality learning, so students achieve their best, enhancing their lives in our rapidly changing world.

As Principal, I am privileged to build partnerships that value the engagement, full participation and empowerment of all families. Through shared authentic relationships we strive to enhance learning and positive mental health for all our students.

We welcome families to be actively engaged in their child’s learning journey at Padbury Primary School, in an environment where all students’ academic, social and emotional development is valued.

Meet Our Staff

Padbury Primary School staff and school community will endeavour to ensure that our students develop the understandings, skills, attitudes and values relevant to individual needs, thereby enabling them to fulfil their potential for full participation in and contribution to the development of our society.

Meet Our Council

The functions of School Boards are to take part in:

  • Establishing and reviewing from time to time, the school’s objectives, priorities and general policy directions
  • The planning of financial arrangements necessary to fund those objectives, priorities and directions
  • Evaluating the school’s performance in achieving those formulating codes of conduct for students at the school
  • Determining, in consultation with students, their parents and staff, the dress code for students when they are attending or representing the school
  • Determining, in consultation with students, their parents and staff, promotion of the school in the community.

Note: “Taking part in” could involve the School Council in discussion, consultation, contribution, assessment, debate and negotiation of issues on behalf of students, parents and the school.

Note: The school Code of Conduct describes expectations for student behaviour and management procedures for inappropriate behaviour. The Code includes rights and responsibilities of members of the school community. The School Council ratifies the code, including specified behavioural consequences and serious breaches of discipline.

The School Council approves:

  • Charges and contributions for the provision of certain materials, services and facilities
  • Extra cost optional components of educational program items to be supplied by a student for personal use in an educational program
  • Any agreements or arrangements for advertising or sponsorship in relation to the school.

Note: “to determine”, “to promote” and “to approve” represents a change from “taking part in” to a stronger, more authoritative role for the School Council with a greater depth of involvement and a clearly defined decision making function.
