School Policies

Woodside Primary School adopts a number of policies to keep students and staff safe.

Specific policies are listed below:

School Improvement

Constant review and improvement is necessary to keep the school current, with a clear and measurable focus on the future. Site improvement plan and annual report documents are listed below.

School Fees

Materials & Services Fees for Woodside Primary School are amongst the lowest in the State and for 2020 are set at $290. We have a wide variety of payment options including cheque, cash and EFT. The School Card Scheme is a government run subsidy which is designed to assist low income earners with their School Fees. Forms are available at the front Office. The School attempts to spread excursion, incursions and camps across the school year to even out requests for payment. We ask that all consent forms be returned with the money for these events as all excursions must be paid before the date. Any families experiencing financial difficulties are asked to speak to the Business Manager in confidence.

Woodside Primary School Out of School Hours Care is located on the beautiful grounds of Woodside Primary School. Woodside OSHC is run by the Governing Council of Woodside Primary School and is an accredited child care provider.

Woodside OSHC complies with the National Quality Framework and My Time, Our Place requirements.

Our staff, in collaboration with the children, put together a fun and varied program each week based on the principals of reflective practice.

Our program includes a focus on sustainable living which involves spending time in our veggie garden. Children are involved in the whole process, from planting seeds to cooking and eating the end product.

Our staff provide children with a variety of multi-cultural experiences. These range from tasting foods that children around the world eat, making crafts relevant to specific cultures and participating in games and sporting activities that children of their age groups play.

We also encourage a very active program. The children learn about a variety of sports and the importance of physical activity for health and wellbeing.

Governing Council

The role of the Governing Council is to facilitate the views and be the voice of parents and caregivers of the school, with the enhancement of students’ learning through the efforts of parents, students, staff and the wider school community. The committee assists the Principal and staff in matters pertaining to the running of the school and OSHC.

There are sub committees for members to provide extra support in an area of interest that they may have, to provide direction for a range of school activities.

The committee welcomes parents and caregivers to contact committee members for suggestions and feedback relating to school and OSHC matters. These can be tabled at a committee meeting and council will endeavour to provide a response as soon as possible.

If you have an interest in becoming a member of Governing Council, meetings are held twice a term, with an AGM held in the first term. Meeting dates are included in the school newsletter and the school community are very welcome to observe meetings.

We trust that you and your family embrace and utilise the many opportunities our school has to offer.

The Governing Council constitution and code of practice can be found below.
