School Policies

Our policy documents are listed below:

Policies & Procedures

Lunches

The children will be seated for fifteen minutes each lunch time.

Your children may have lunch orders on Monday, Wednesday and Friday which come from the Buchan Valley Roadhouse.

NO LOLLIES, SOFT DRINKS OR GLASS CONTAINERS, PLEASE.

Bus Travellers

Parents are to advise school (preferably written) of alternative travel arrangements or requests. Note also that regular bus travellers will always be put on the bus unless authorisation is provided by parents.

Medication

No medication of ANY kind is to be administered to the children by staff members. If your child requires medication during school hours, please visit the school yourself or arrange with a friend to give the medication at the appropriated times.

Bicycles

Please ensure that your children know the road laws and can ride competently before allowing them to ride to school. All children riding bikes to school must wear approved crash helmets. Ensure that the bicycle is in roadworthy condition.

Accidents

In the case of accidents sustaining injury, the first responsibility of the teacher is to treat the child and then contact the parent. Upon being contacted, it is the parent’s responsibility to take the child to a doctor or hospital. Please ensure that the school has up-to-date information of a contact number for yourself or an emergency contact person.

Parental Visits to the School

The school welcomes parent visits and active involvement and interest in their child’s learning and development. However it is important to be mindful that each classroom teacher and the Principal have a heavy classroom commitment and the importance of not disrupting classroom learning. Parents are requested to limit contact and visits to the school to outside class times.

Telephone Calls

Please keep telephone calls to a minimum. The most convenient times to call are before 9:00, between 11:00 – 11:20 and 1:00- 1:45 or after 3:20pm. If you telephone outside these hours you may leave a recorded message.

Transfers

If you intend to leave our school, please make arrangements for a transfer note.
