School Review – Required Policy Documents
An integral part of the School Review being conducted in 2019 is confirmation of the school’s registration with the Victorian Registrations and Qualifications Authority (VRQA)
The VRQA require schools to have a range of policy documents to be in place. The school staff have been reviewing these VRQA required policies and have posted drafts below for which we invite your feedback. These policies include revised existing policies (see below) and a number of new policies (marked ‘New‘.) Please note that each draft posted here will be sent for ratification at our first School Council meeting on February 20, following feedback revision.
