Students - School Guidelines

NO HAT NO PLAY POLICY

 

We have a ‘No Hat, No Play’ Policy.  Students who do not have hat are not to play and are required to stay in the shade, sit under the verandah, and this also includes activities during lesson times.

 

 

STUDENT/S LEAVING SCHOOL DURING THE DAY

 

Students leaving the school during the day should present formal notification to the classroom teacher. 

 

 

STUDENT MOBILE PHONES

 

For security before and after school, students are permitted to have a mobile phone at school. However, they must sign a contract to agree to the stipulated terms and conditions and the phone, iPad or electronic device must be handed in to their classroom teacher each morning and collected at the conclusion of the school day.

 

HOMEWORK 

Homework can assist students to create study habits that will help them become lifelong learners.  Homework focuses on the revision of concepts covered in class or the reinforcement of work already completed.  There may be times when your child will require assistance; however, they should be able to complete most tasks independently.  

 

Teachers have an expectation that homework will be completed.  If you have any queries regarding homework please arrange a time to speak with the teacher.  In accordance with Department of Education guidelines, the issuing of and completion by students is non-compulsory.

 

 

INTERNET

 

The importance of the Internet to school and education is growing daily.  Access to this resource provides opportunities to greatly enhance the educational programs offered to students.  The Internet is a means of bringing the world around us into the students’ classrooms.

 

To avoid misuse or exposure to inappropriate material by students, the use of the Internet by students is governed by strict guidelines.  

 

Spring Hill Primary School’s Internet Policy has been designed to incorporate the ‘Internet Usage, Policy and Guidelines’ from the Department of Education of Western Australia and also the ideals of our school.

 

The purpose of this policy is to provide guidance for teachers, students and parents alike.  We urge all parents to read the policy, discuss it with their children and to approach the school if they wish to have any part of the document clarified.
