Independent Public Schools

Wattle Grove Primary School was awarded Independent Public School (IPS) status in 2012.
Gaining IPS status has helped to build on our strengths and to maximise every learning opportunity through high quality, high standards, values and enriched teaching and learning.
In collaboration with their school community, Independent Public Schools set their own strategic directions, have authority for day-to-day decision making and are in an ideal position to make decisions that best cater for their students. Parents and community members have an important and enhanced role in this initiative.

In order to operate with more autonomy, Independent Public Schools are afforded a number of flexibilities. This means that they can select staff, manage their financial affairs through a one line budget, select school development day dates, approve leave applications, determine the curriculum that best supports students’ needs, as well as manage school utilities (electricity, water, gas and waste management) and faults (breakdowns and repairs).

Independent Public Schools remain part of the public school system. For more information on how being an Independent Public School may help us meet the needs of our students, go to http://www.det.wa.edu.au/independentpublicschools/.
