POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
This folder covers the policies of St Mary's Catholic School. Behind the policies sit the more detailed "Procedural and Administrative Guidelines" which state 'the how, what and why details' for each policy. All staff members are expected to familiarise themselves with these guidelines and procedures.
For a school to function effectively and provide high quality learning for students, it needs to have well articulated, user-friendly policies which need to be supported by workable readily understandable procedures and administrative guidelines. The ongoing review of school policy is an important aspect of school management and administration.
It is the responsibility of the Board of Trustees to review and ratify policy with the Principal and management responsible for the procedures and administrative guidelines that implement the policy. Each policy is reviewed bi-annually, with the procedures and administrative guidelines being reviewed as and when necessary.
The policies cover Catholic Special Character and the six National Administrative Guidelines (NAGs).
The six NAGs are:
NAG 1: Curriculum
NAG 2: Documentation and Review
NAG 3: Personnel
NAG 4: Finance and Property

In addition to these policies, St Mary's School has a Catholic Special Character Policy.
