Our Policies & Procedures

Procedures A - Z

Asthma/Allergies

If your child has any medical condition, please be sure to let the school know in advance of them starting. It is important that staff are well informed of any special requirements they may need to perform.

Asthma sufferers on medication must provide the school with an emergency supply, as well as having their own supply on hand at all times.  Please make sure a current asthma information form is filled out for your child. This is available from staff in the office. Epipens and other specialised medication should be clearly labelled and discussed with your child’s teacher.

Attendance - General

It is not uncommon for students to be absent from school from time to time.

If your child is absent for any reason please contact the school by phone and also fill out this Absence Form ( also located on the bottom of the newsletter ) and send it with your child when they return to school.

Attendance - Before/After School

We recommend that children arrive between 8.45am and 8.55am each day. This gives them time to greet friends and teachers before the formal day begins.

As a strong community based school, parents are welcome to chat and socialise in the playground before and after school hours. However, please know that staff are unable to guarantee supervision of children before 8:45am or past 3:30pm due to meetings and other commitments. Please plan to supervise your child(ren) at these times.

 

 

Infectious Diseases & School Exclusions Table

As directed by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (school policy and advisory guide), schools must take precautions to prevent and control the transmission of infectious diseases.
Schools must be aware of and abide by exclusion requirements during an outbreak of an infectious disease. The school exclusion table is maintained by the Department of Human Services and is available here:
http://ideas.health.vic.gov.au/guidelines/school-exclusion-table.asp

Please download the table for detailed information on the minimum period of exclusion from primary schools fro students who have an infectious disease.

Illness at school

If your child becomes ill at school and needs to go home we will contact you or one of the people listed as an emergency contact.

Medication at School

Confirmation of a request for a teacher to administer medication should be given in writing.  If your child takes regular medication, detailed information must be supplied using a form available from the office.

We are not able to administer pain killers unless we have written permission and they have been provided by you.

Excursions

The school’s excursion program enables students to further their learning and social skills development in a non-school setting.  Day excursions complement, and are an important aspect of the educational programs offered at our school.

The aims of excursions include:

 

The principal is responsible for the approval of all non-adventure single-day excursions while School Council is responsible for approval of all overnight excursions, camps, and other excursions as outlined in the complete policy document. 

Sunsmart

Over exposure to the sun presents a serious health risk.  Students must therefore be educated as to the need for suitable sun protection, and protected from over exposure to the sun whilst at school.

The aims of this policy include:

To achieve these aims, this policy requires that children and staff will wear adequate sun protection including broad brimmed hats and sunscreen. Shade will be provided and activities planned outside the highest UV exposure times. Students will also be educated about sun protection as part of the Health and Physical Education curriculum at all year levels.

Sustainability

At Nungurner Primary we strive to promote an environmentally conscious school that engages in a range of sustainable practices wherever possible.

The aims of this policy include becoming community leaders in sustainability by achieving set targets for the reduction of waste, water and energy consumption while increasing biodiversity on the school grounds and involvement in the community gardens.

We will achieve this by integrating sustainability into all areas of the curriculum and instilling a sense of ownership of and pride in improving the environment.

Student Engagement and Well-being

At Nungurner Primary School we believe that all children have the ability to learn, and this happens best when the environment provided is safe and positive.

We aim to provide a child-centred, developmentally appropriate, learning environment that recognises, fosters and promotes the intellectual, social, emotional and physical development of each child and where mutual cooperation and respect is evident. We understand that many children have unique wellbeing and learning needs and we are committed to addressing these needs.

Our Student Wellbeing focus aims to empower individuals and teams to enable a sense of connectedness and purpose. We seek to help build self-confidence, self-esteem and resilience in order for our students to approach future life experiences, opportunities and challenges with self-assurance and energy.

Student safety and wellbeing are embedded in all components of the school’s work and also addressed specifically as part of our Values Education program and Circle Time activities.

Uniform/Dress Code

A uniform dress code reinforces in students a pride in their own appearance, instils recognition of themselves as an integral part of the school community, and assists in developing pride in representing their school.  Issues of equality, health and safety, and expense are also factors that contribute to the establishment of the Dress Code.


The wearing of school uniform is compulsory. Detailed information about the Schoo Uniform can be found on the Getting Ready for School Page.
