Reports, Policies and Plans:

Birmingham Primary School’s school council is responsible for developing and approving a number of policies to reflect the school’s values and to support the school’s broad direction, as outlined in its strategic plan.

Some of the policies are required by law and the Department of Education and Training (Department), however – over the years – we have also developed other policies to address local needs.

It is our pleasure to make many of these policies available to the school community (via these pages) as a means to:

  • clarify functions and responsibilities,
  • manage change
  • promote consistency of practice
  • meet standards, and
  • ensure decision-making is transparent.
