AGPPA is the professional association representing Principals of over 5,300 Government Primary Schools across Australia. Within the Government sector there is a significant difference in the degree of local autonomy for schools already existing between different States and Territories. AGPPA supports Principals having increased decision-making capacity, working in collaboration with their local community. The extent of local decision-making and the aspects of school leadership and management that are accepted as being most effectively devolved to the school level must reflect the individual circumstances of each school and its community – a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach will not work.
