School Docs Policy and Procedure Review

In March this year we introduced School Docs to our community as the portal for reviewing and viewing our policies and procedures.  At that time we also sent home a separate email to our existing families with the login details.  These details remain active, however, we will also send home a further email to you, following this newsletter, with School Docs login.  Even though the Term 2 reviews are for the Board of Trustees and Staff to undertake, and not in this instance for parents, please store the login details carefully.

The school works on a subscription basis with SchoolDocs to maintain, update, and review our policies. SchoolDocs provides us with a comprehensive core set of policies which have been well researched and follow the Ministry of Education National Administration Guidelines. The policies and procedures are tailored to our school, and the school supplies specific information such as our charter, and procedures for behaviour management, reporting to parents, etc. 

SchoolDocs updates, modifies, or creates policies in response to changes in legislation or Ministry guidelines, significant events, reviews/requests from schools, and regular reviewing from the SchoolDocs team. Our board of trustees has the opportunity to view changes/additions and comment on them before they are implemented. We will advise you when policies are up for review and how you can take part in the review. 
In Term 2 the latest policies to be updated are:
  • Emergency Planning and Procedures  (Board of Trustees and Staff review only)
  • Curriculum and Student Achievement Policy (Board of Trustees and Staff review only)

Friday Sausages and Charlie Drink Year 6 Camp Fundraiser

The Year 6 children are fundraising for their camp to be held in December.
