Tākaka Primary School

Policies and Procedures

An important part of the Board’s governance responsibilities involves setting policies that describe how we expect the school to be run, in order to produce the best outcomes for our students and to fulfil our legal requirements. The application of these policies in the day-to-day running of the school is the responsibility of the principal, in accordance with the procedures and handbooks specified in each policy.

SchoolDocs provides us with a comprehensive core set of policies which have been well researched and follow the Ministry of Education National Administration Guidelines. The policies and procedures are tailored to fit our school; including school specific information such as our charter, procedures for behaviour management and reporting to parents.

Our policies are monitored by SchoolDocs and updated, modified, or created in response to changes in legislation, significant events, Ministry guidelines, reviews /requests from schools, with regular reviewing from the SchoolDocs team. We will advise you when policies are up for review and how you can take part in this review.

Concerns and Complaints

The Concerns and Complaints Flowchart to the left outlines our school procedures around the Concerns and Complaints process.

From time to time issues of concern may arise.

The first person you should always speak to should be your child’s teacher, who will work with you to resolve the issue.

If concerns persist, the Hub Leader will be able to assist.


If issues are still not resolved, please contact the school office and make an appointment to see the Principal.
