Class Allocation Policy
Here at St Emilie’s Catholic Primary School, we believe that educating and developing our children is
enhanced when our staff, students and parents/carers coexist in positive, collaborative relationships of shared responsibility.
We, therefore, encourage and facilitate active participation by parents in the education of their children and support our staff to foster a culture of teaching excellence. As an integral part of this process of creating positive learning environments, we strive to achieve the best possible class placement for every child, based upon their needs.

Healthy Eating Policy
The human person, though made of body and soul, is a unity. The human body shares in the dignity of the image of God: it is a human body precisely because it is animated by a spiritual soul, and it is the whole human person that is intended to become, in the body of Christ, a temple of the Spirit¹.
‘Catholic schools contribute to the development of our young through education, particularly to their formation in Christian conscience and virtue’ (Mandate, para 6). Students at St Emilie’s School are educated to understand that they are spiritual beings in relationship with God who live in physical bodies that require care. Catholic schools encourage students to make healthy choices for their lives including healthy food choices.

St Emilie’s is a reflection of the Church’s commitment to the dignity of the individual (Mandate para 6). It is important that we demonstrate this commitment in the manner in which we protect information we hold about our school community.
Our school requires information about students and their families in order to provide for the education of our students. The Privacy Act 1988 directs the manner in which private sector organisations, including Catholic schools and systems, manage the personal and sensitive information of individuals. The purpose of the legislation is to ensure that organisations, which hold information about individuals, handle the information responsibly. It aims to establish a nationally consistent approach to the management of personal information.
Selection & Use of Texts Policy
St Emilie’s School aims to help students to integrate culture, faith and life. We value culture and we foster its critical transmission. Underlying our approach are values which are founded upon the teaching of Jesus Christ.
It is these values which help to inform the very important process of selection and use of texts at St Emilie’s.

Sun Smart Policy
It is important to have a healthy balance of ultraviolet radiation (UV) exposure. Too much UV can cause sunburn, skin and eye damage and skin cancer. Overexposure to UV during childhood and adolescence is a major factor in determining future skin cancer risk. Too little UV can lead to low vitamin D levels. Vitamin D is necessary for the development and maintenance of healthy bones and muscles, and for general health.
St Emilie’s Sun Smart Policy has been developed to ensure that all students and staff attending this school are protected from skin damage caused by the harmful ultraviolet rays of the sun. It is to be implemented throughout the year, but with particular emphasis in Terms 1 and 4.

It is a compulsory requirement of enrolment here at St Emilie’s that all students wear the correct school uniform at all times.
