Mobile Phone Policy
The staff and School Board of Rosalie Primary School acknowledge the need for some children to have a mobile phone in their possession for safety or security reasons before and after school. The teaching and learning process at Rosalie must take place in an environment that is free from the distraction of mobile phones. Consequently we stress that inappropriate use of mobile phones will not be tolerated. Students who have good reason to have a mobile phone at school will abide by the guidelines laid down in this policy.
Behaviour Management Policy
At Rosalie Primary School we:
- create a safe and supportive learning environment where children respect the rights of others;
- empower children to own and accept responsibility for their behaviour;
- establish clear guidelines that protect the rights of all individuals where the procedures, consequences and rewards are clearly defined and known by the whole school community; and
- maintain a partnership between teachers and parents based on the belief that our high expectations for our students will only be achieved through a united effort.
Gifted and Talented Policy
Giftedness refers to a student’s potential and ability in one or more domains that have been deemed by either the school teaching staff or the parents to be outstanding. Talent refers to outstanding performance in one or more fields of activity. It is a result of the student’s learning experiences. These definitions reflect the distinction between ability and performance by acknowledging the importance of innate ability while also recognising the important influence of the environment in the development of a person’s giftedness and talent.
Homework is academic work designed to extend the learning, practice and application of skills and ideas taught in the classroom. Homework supports the development of the student as an independent learner providing an opportunity to learn skills such as time management, perseverance, goal setting and critical thinking.
Students at Educational Risk Policy
At Rosalie Primary School we provide an inclusive, safe and stimulating learning environment that endeavours to meet the needs of the children in our care. We employ procedures for the identification of students at educational risk and provide appropriate educational programs for these children, including gifted and talented students, wherever possible. We are accountable for the educational progress of these students and committed to keeping their parents fully informed of their progress.
Assessment and Reporting Policy
At Rosalie Primary School we believe assessment for learning, of learning and as learning is integral to the achievement of high quality learning outcomes. Effective teaching and learning requires that timely, meaningful and comprehensive information on student achievement and progress is provided to students and parents to promote effective home/school partnerships in support of student learning.
Sun Protection Policy
Staff and parents at Rosalie Primary School recognise and understand the ever increasing importance of protecting our children from developing skin cancer later in life. We also provide guidelines which encourage all adults attending Rosalie Primary School to take sun protection responsibly. In conjunction with the Cancer Council WA, the Sun Protection Policy has been approved and is now operational.
Donations and Sponsorship Policy
Donations and sponsorships provided to Rosalie Primary School support the provision of resources for the benefit of the student population. This policy provides the framework for the acceptance or non–acceptance of donations and sponsorships offered to the school. It provides no guidance for donations and sponsorships offered to the school’s Parents’ and Citizens Association.
Preventing and Managing Bullying Policy
It is the school community’s belief that all students should feel safe and valued while in the care of Rosalie Primary School. We aim to deliver a clear message that bullying or harassing behaviour is not acceptable in any form in our school. Rosalie staff take a proactive stance on this issue with many preventative approaches embedded within the curriculum.
