Welcome to IPS Action

IPSAction provides specialised services to Independent Public Schools to meet the accountability requirements and reduce workload. The goal is to assist schools to maximise the opportunities for IPSs and to capitalise on the benefits. We also seek to alleviate stress and provide professional and personal support for our colleagues.

Understanding Principals

With over 80 years of combined experience in the WA education leadership, we understand the nature of the challenge facing IPSs. We appreciate the demanding workload and are committed to supporting our colleagues to reduce stress and create positive outcomes through improved school performance.


IPSAction has undertaken detailed research and has prepared a substantial body of ready-to-use documents, strategies and action plans. These tools assist schools in the production of customised Business Plans with SMART targets and realistic implementation plans. We help schools to extract verifiable data and analyse this data to demonstrate the effectiveness and improvement in school performance.
