Principal’s Welcome


We would like to acknowledge the traditional owners of the land on which we meet today, the Whadjuk people of the Noongar Nation of Australia and pay our respects to the elders of the past, present and emerging.

Welcome to Attadale Primary School – An Independent Public School.

When you join our school community you will quickly become acquainted with the quality and richness of programs that are designed to meet your child’s needs. Our school values of Fair Go, Stand Up, Give it Your Best and Take Care are used in our everyday dealings with each other (colleagues, students and parents) and in the development of our programs and policies. These values form the moral purpose of our school and the foundation for ensuring the best school environment for all members of our community.

Our school is staffed by dynamic and experienced teachers, administration and assistants.  Staff are dedicated in their approach to education and to working as a member of a collaborative team in order to meet the needs of every student.  Loyalty, care, dedication and teamwork are strong features of our staff.

Our reputation as a school of choice attracts enquiries for enrolment from all over the world, both for students and teaching positions.  Our student numbers continue to remain at approximately 385 students.  This means we have that nearly perfect balance between cohorts large enough to challenge and engage students and small enough to know each other and what we stand for.  We pride ourselves on the high standards of behaviour and safety that exists at Attadale Primary School.  Collectively, as a school and community, we plan to continue and build on this very high standard.

Attadale Primary has a strong moral purpose and reputation for delivering high quality differentiated education. Our curriculum is broad, relevant and dynamic. Students are actively involved in their learning, acquiring knowledge, skills, positive attitudes and values. We focus on Excellence, Enrichment, Engagement and Acceleration with an emphasis on each child reaching their full potential academically, socially and emotionally.

This is a terrific school because of the understanding and commitment by everyone to live the culture [values, beliefs, habits, policies & process] we have built and hold each other accountable to every day.

We warmly welcome you to Attadale Primary School.

Kind regards,
Phil Springett
