To ensure student safety, the following procedures have been developed:
· On arrival at school children should make their way to the front of the canteen area (Primary) or the Spanish Steps (Middle) via the walkway from the front car park or the walkway from the bus bay. Children move to classes on the bell.
· Class rolls are taken at the beginning of each day and a list of children absent is sent to the office. It is important that children are in attendance at the beginning of the school day. Middle and senior school rolls are marked every lesson.
If your child is late for school, please take them to the administration building first so that we can update records
· If you need to take your child out of school during the day, please contact the administration office. Children will need to be signed in/out before leaving the school and on their return.
· If your child is absent for the day, please ring the front office: 62074455
The School Board is our official governing body which consists of nine members: the Principal, 3 parent representatives, 2 teacher representatives, 2 student representatives and one community representative. Board members are elected and are responsible for all policy decisions for the school.
The school has the services of a school psychologist 5 days per week. The psychologist is responsible for assisting in identifying special educational needs of students and is available to support students and families in times of need.
This committee is formed by the Principal, Deputy Principals, Inclusive Education Coordinator, Psychologist and other teachers as appropriate. Throughout the year each child’s learning and/or social and emotional development is monitored and programs are developed and evaluated for children identified as requiring support.
The KSS Student Representative Council gives students a voice in the decision-making processes within the school. Representatives from all classes K – 10 will have a role deciding on the outcome for issues relevant to the student body. There are specific school leaders elected across the school, particularly Year 5 and Year 10 school and house leaders.
Our policy is based upon our respect for each child as an individual and is designed to enable children to learn to solve their own problems. Children learn that they are able to make choices, that there are consequences flowing from all choices and, that in addition to their rights, they also have responsibilities to others. Children choosing behaviour which infringes upon the rights of others will be given assistance by staff (often in consultation with parents) to develop more effective behaviour. KSS is a restorative practices and Positive Behaviours for Learning school.
