Maddington Primary School caters for approximately 200 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, Iraq, Indonesia, the Philippines, China, Korea, New Zealand, Samoa, Sudan and Zimbabwe) and have on staff, a teacher who specializes in teaching children whose English is a second language.
While our school still reflects the architecture of the time it was built, our up to date facilities, and experienced teachers ensure that all students are not only encouraged, but achieve at their very best.
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 and support programs, and referrals to other support services. During the school holidays, centre staff run holiday programs packed with fun activities for families to enjoy as well as a healthy morning tea.

Parental participation is encouraged in our classroom programs. Many parents also volunteer to assist in the school library, at sporting events and on other special days. Added to our spirit of cooperation and inclusion, Maddington Primary School and Maddington Education Support Centre share a joint P&C and School Council. We also have a Chaplain at our school four days a week.
Our school has a new early childhood centre and a newly refurbished library. All classrooms have new interactive whiteboards, as well as access to iPads and laptops. We have a dedicated art room and an art specialist teacher.
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.
