Governance and Policies

Governance and Policies

The Board of Trustees is a crown entity and is responsible for the governance of our School. The key focus of their role is the improvement of student progress and achievement.

School Charter

The Charter identifies the Board’s priorities and sets the direction for our School. It is our key planning document and is comprised of the following three sections:

  • an introductory section – including mission, vision and values
  • a strategic section – looking at the next 3–5 years
  • an annual section – identifying targets and planned actions 

A copy of the 2019 Strategic Plan can be downloaded here

School Policies and Procedures

The Board has a policy framework with delegations and accountabilities to support School Management in the day to day running of the School.

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.
