Padbury Catholic Primary School serves the area of Padbury and other surrounding suburbs within close proximity to the school.
It is a co-educational Catholic primary school catering for approximately 500 students from K-6. Padbury is not attached physically to a parish. The Parish Priest and Assistant Priest of Our Lady of the Missions Parish, Craigie, minister to the Padbury Catholic School Community.
The school is owned by the Archbishop of the Diocese of Perth and he in turn delegates the employing authority to the Principal, in consultation with the School Board acting under the approved CECWA Western Australian School Board Constitution and subject to relevant CECWA policies. Lay Principals are appointed by the Bishop of the Diocese.
