School Policies

What Are School Policies For?


A policy is an inclusive expression of desired outcome, rather than the old 'school rules' structure which only targeted pupils. At Weeden Heights PS, we create policies that apply to the entire school community in order to manage, inform and ensure a better environment for everyone involved.

How Are School Policies Made?
The Weeden Heights Education Sub-Committee (comprising of teachers and parents) compose all of the schools' policies and review any existing ones on a cyclic basis (3 year rotation) or as required. The Sub Committee then consults with the staff and they provide feedback. The next step in the process is to consult with the school community.

The parents are notified through the school newsletter of current policies being reviewed and directed to this section of the website. As part of this process we also post new policies on this site for students, parents and community members to assess. You can click on the links at the bottom of this page to review when there are policies up for consideration. Please email any comments to the school at: weedenheights.ps@edumail.vic.gov.au

The Sub-Committee then reviews feedback and makes the necessary changes. The policies are then submitted to the School Council for recommendation and ratification.
