Hard copies of all policies are available to read on request at the Main Office. Some of these policies can also be downloaded below.
As a Victorian Government school, we adhere to the policies and guidelines as described in the Department of Education website.
Personal accident and personal property insurance
The Department of Education and Training and St Kilda Primary School does not have insurance for accidental injuries or accidental property damage. However, in some circumstances, medical or other expenses will be paid by the Department where it is assessed that it is likely, in all the circumstances, that the Department is liable for negligent acts or omissions of its staff or volunteers.
For more information about the Department’s public liability claims process, please see: Negligence Claims Process.
St Kilda Primary School encourages parents and carers to consider obtaining their own accident insurance for students and property of value that may be brought to school. Please also note our school’s Personal Property Policy listed below.
School Policy Documents
Parents and carers have the opportunity to provide feedback in the development and review of all policies, particularly child safety and wellbeing policies and practices. Feedback can be provided in person by scheduling a meeting with a member of the Wellbeing Team, via email or by attending the Community Engagement and Communication sub-committee meetings when the relevant policy is being tabled for consultation/review.
Department of Education Policies
During the ordinary course of your child’s attendance at our school, school staff will collect your child’s personal and health information when necessary to educate your child, or to support your child’s social and emotional wellbeing or health in the school context. Such information will also be collected when required to fulfil a legal obligation, including duty of care, anti-discrimination law and occupational health and safety law. If that information is not collected, the school may be unable to provide optimal education or support to your child, or fulfil those legal obligations.
Please download the Collection Statement below to find out more.
