School Policies

Newlands School Policies

Newlands 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 board of trustees 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 the site at: https://www.schooldocs.co.nz.  Search for our school ‘Newlands School’ and then enter the user name: newlandsprimary and password: harakeke.
