Newlands Primary School Policies

Newlands Primary 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.

Policies are monitored by SchoolDocs and updated, modified, or created in response to changes in legislation, significant events, Ministry guidelines, reviews/requests from schools, and regular reviewing from the SchoolDocs team. Our School Board has the opportunity to view changes and 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.

We invite you to visit our school site here (User name: newlandsprimary – Password: harakeke).

You can also find our Concerns and Complaints Process here.

Newlands Primary School requires that its students wear a school uniform. We believe the uniform gives our students a sense of pride. More details can be found under the Parent Information section.


If your child needs to take any sort of medication at school, it will be administered at the school office. More details can be found under the Parent Information section.


The School donation is a voluntary payment and is used for various enrichment programmes or projects that fall outside our Ministry funding. We are always very grateful for any donations received. More details can be found under the Parent Information section.
