1 Draft ARANDA PRIMARY SCHOOL Communication Policy 2011

2 ARANDA PRIMARY SCHOOL COMMUNICATION POLICY We all want a strong and positive sense of school community where staff, parents and carers and students feel they belong. One where we all feel we can share ideas and knowledge in an accepting environment. This provides a strong foundation upon which to deliver the best possible learning outcomes for our children. As a school community we use the Aranda Primary School good communication basics and we encourage and support each other to use them. The Aranda Primary School good communication basics are: we are always respectful, polite and honest. We strive always to be clear, accurate, timely, relevant, targeted, open, reciprocal and interactive. We strive for open, positive and meaningful communication in everything we do. We support each other to be involved in the exchange of ideas and in maintaining an environment where people feel their views are valued and respected and where they feel they have been heard. Our school leaders lead by example. People who want to find out information relating to the school can and should be able to do so quickly and easily. We maintain a table that contains our main communication mechanisms, what we communicate through those mechanisms, who is responsible for them and how often we can expect to receive them. That way anyone looking for information can easily access it. The Aranda Primary School Communication Policy supports and is supported by the ACT Department of Education and Training (DET) Policy, Parents/Carers as Partners in Schooling Policy, September 2001.
