Flemington School Policies
The evolution of school policies has led to many changes to the documentation over the years since Tomorrows Schools was first implemented in 1988.
In the first few years schools were guided to have policies for just about every conceivable aspect of schooling, which led to many schools having between 50 to 100 policies, with most of them containing lots of procedures and actions, which would be better contained in a procedural document.
Best practice now dictates that less is best. This means schools are guided to have between 9 to 15 policies, with a layer of procedures underneath them. This reflects the model that seperates the management of a school from the governance of a school. There have been some recent changes that have increased this slightly especially around Health and Safety and the Vulnerable Children Acts.
The Flemington School Policies are listed below and are reviewed anually as part of the Board's Workplan.
