Maddington Primary School aims to provide a creative and innovative learning environment for students that is intellectually, emotionally and physically supportive of learning. In fostering this development, our school values reflect the rich diversity of its community and promote positive involvement and interaction between students, staff and parents. Our team of educators are committed to working collaboratively to ensure students benefit from an all-inclusive education.
Maddington Primary School caters for approximately 240 children from Kindergarten to Year 6. The Maddington Primary School ethos is that everyone will be treated with care and respect while inspiring individuals to be the best they can be.
We offer a safe, caring and nurturing environment where all students are given every opportunity to blossom and to achieve their full potential. Our diverse community includes many new arrivals to Australia, with many speaking English as a second language. We are proud of our diverse cultural heritage with students from many nations (India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, Indonesia, the Philippines, New Zealand, Samoa, Singapore, Zimbabwe and many other countries).
While our school still reflects the architecture of the time it was built, our up to date facilities and well trained staff ensure that all students are not only encouraged, but achieve at their very best.
The school is on a shared campus with Maddington Education Support Centre. A noticeable feature in Maddington PS is the strong working relationship it has with Maddington Education Support Centre. Together both schools are called Maddington Schools and staff from both schools are committed to inclusive practices and work collaboratively, to ensure all students will benefit from an inclusive education.
Families also have access to the Child and Parent Centre – East Maddington. Its aim is to work with local agencies and families to provide integrated services that increase health, well-being and school readiness for young children and their families. Services and programs currently available include child health services, healthy eating workshops, early learning programs, supported and targeted daily playgroups, parenting information, support programs and referrals to other support services. The following is a direct link to their website http://childandparentcentres.wa.edu.au/east-maddington/
Added to our spirit of cooperation and inclusion, Maddington Primary School and Maddington Education Support Centre share a joint School Council. We also have a Chaplain at our school four days a week.
Our school has an early childhood centre and a newly refurbished library. All classrooms have new interactive whiteboards, as well as access to iPads and laptops. We have specialist teachers in The Arts and Physical Education who engage students in targeted lessons in these learning areas.
Our school is supported by local businesses in the area and we continue to strengthen our links with the wider community in order to maximise the educational opportunities for all students.
