Policies and Procedures
The following included documents cover the policies of Fruitvale Primary School. Behind the policies sit the more detailed “Procedural and Administrative Guidelines” which state ‘the how, what and why details’ for each policy.
For a school to function effectively and provide quality learning opportunities for children it needs to have well-articulated, user-friendly policies which, in turn, need to be supported by workable readily understandable procedures and administrative guidelines. The on-going review of School Policy is a very important and vital facet of school management and administration.
It is the responsibility of the Board of Trustees to review and/or ratify policy with the Principal and management responsible for the procedures and administrative guidelines that implement the policy. The ratification of policies is done annually by the Board.
The policies detailed here dovetail with the School Charter (viewable HERE), which is the overriding, or “Grand Master”, of all documents.
Following, then, are the current Fruitvale Primary School Policies. Each policy is reviewed every year; with the procedures and administrative guidelines being reviewed as and when necessary. Where the word ‘parent’ is used, this refers to parent, caregiver or guardian.
The policies cover the six NAGS. These are also reflected in the School Charter.
The areas are:
NAG 1 – Curriculum
NAG 2 – Documentation and Review
NAG 3 – Personnel
NAG 4 – Finance and Property
NAG 5 – Health and Safety
