Independent Public School

The Independent Public School (IPS) initiative is an exciting development in Western Australian public education. Maylands Peninsula Primary School became an Independent Public School in 2011.

In order to operate with more autonomy, as an Independent Public School, Maylands Peninsula Primary School is afforded a number of flexibilities. These include the selection of teaching and support staff and the management of finances through a one-line budget.

Although we are an Independent Public School, we remain part of the Western Australian public school system. As such, Maylands Peninsula Primary School is obliged to comply with relevant legislation, industrial agreements and whole of government policies and initiatives. These include the School Education Act 1999, School Education Regulations 2000 as well as each individual Board's constitution.

In collaboration with our School Board, Maylands Peninsula Primary School has set our strategic direction through the development of our 2014-2016 school Business Plan. This document is further articulated through the school's Operational Plans and associated policy statements.
