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.

Road Safety Reminder

Principal's have been asked to remind parents of the importance of using seat-belts and child restraints correctly.

Seat-belts can reduce the risk of being killed in an accident by up to 50% so it is essential that parents restrain their children in the correct way. The safest way for children to wear seat belts differs with age. By law, there is a specific way to restrain a child between birth and six months old; six months and four years old; four and seven years old; and over seven years old. The Road Safety Council and School Drug Education and Road Aware wish to remind parents that it is unsafe and illegal not to follow these practices.
