School Policies

Our school policies at Essendon North Primary School are designed to provide uniformity and consistency in decisions and actions across the community. They are usually written documents that outline the required process or procedure within the school.

Policy development is generally overseen by the School Council, and the Continuous Improvement Sub-Committee regularly seeks community views, develops policies and oversees program implementation for the school. School policies are generally reviewed on a three year cycle to ensure their continuing relevance.
