Hi, my name is Stephen Bevan and I am Principal at Madeley Primary School in Perth, Western Australia. Research shows that open and clear communication between home and school is important which is why I have created this blog. As Principal of Madeley Primary School I value your opinions and encourage your comments. Feel free to comment on any of the posts. Comments are moderated prior to going live on the blog.

I will endeavour to provide you with regular and informative posts about our school and its activities. I ask that your comments be constructive and positive with any concerns or complaints directed to me personally at school.

Madeley Primary School prides itself on the positive, open and friendly culture that has been established. Our core values of Curriculum, Community and Care are guiding principles that shape our school.

Nature Play

Our new Off-Site Nature Play Policy has commenced very successfully.

a.    A designated off-site play area will be created and clearly marked
b.    Students in Years K – 6 will be given opportunity to access the designated off-site play area during recess and lunchtime.
c.    Parental consent will be required for all students wishing to access the off-site play area.
d.    Staff will provide students with ongoing ‘point-of-need’ instruction of how to stay safe and care for others and the environment. This process of educating students helps to reduce the risks associated with student behaviour.

This week parents were provided with additional information and a permission slip to return if they want their child to access the Nature Play area. Students with permission have been issued with a Nature Play Pass wristband. The first wristband is free with lost or damaged bands being available for $2.00. Students are responsible for the care of their own wristband.
