Policies & Parent Information Booklet

Welcome to Brabham Primary School

It is an honour to have your child and family join our new, inclusive learning community. We invite you on a shared educational journey, where we value working in partnership with parents to create opportunities that are reflective of the needs of our students and wider community.

Our students are at the centre of everything that we do. At Brabham PS our team of skilled and engaged educators work together to promote and provide a diverse range of learning opportunities aimed at developing the whole child, with a focus on the academic, social, physical and emotional development of EVERY child.

Our school is one that fosters a sense of belonging for everyone. We celebrate and welcome members from all cultures and foster a positive and supportive learning environment through high expectations of student learning and behaviour.

This handbook was developed to provide easy access to relevant information to support families as they transition into our new school environment. We welcome any feedback that could enhance this process to ensure that this is a positive experience for students and their families.

Quality communication is our goal, therefore, the school acknowledges the role of parents as joint partners and welcomes your involvement. We aim to communicate effectively with everyone in our community, and therefore we use a range of strategies and mediums to suit the different needs and preferences of parents, caregivers and community members.

The attached plan has been developed and outlines the standards that Brabham Primary School expects from all staff when communicating with parents. It also outlines the most appropriate and effective methods for parents to communicate with the school.


The aim of our Behaviour and Student Engagement Policy is to establish and maintain a safe and secure environment for learning where the focus is on engaging ALL students and where high quality, positive relationships between the staff and students at BPS are fostered.

The decision to cancel activities or events due to weather will be at the discretion of the Principal or a person she nominates, often one of the Deputy Principals.
