This page contains useful information about school procedures as well as a number of handy forms that parents can download.
When your child is absent from school we require a written explanation or a personal contact and you will find the details in this handbook. Children arriving during the school day, or leaving before the end of the school day, need to be signed in or out, by the parent or guardian, at the school office. We operate by the motto, "It's Not OK To Be Away".
Infectious diseases require exclusion from school as infections spread quickly. Click here to see a table detailing the minimum period of exclusion from Primary School for children with an infectious disease.
Written permission is needed to administer any form of medication to children at school. Permission must include the dosage and specific time to be administered. Only medications from a doctor's prescription can be given.
Parents of asthmatic and anaphylactic children will be required to complete an Emergency Action Plan and provide the school with additional medication. This will be kept in the First Aid room and used in accordance with the Emergency Action Plan. It is the school policy that if a student is having an asthma or anaphylactic attack that is not responding to medication, an ambulance will be requested. Ventolin inhalers and epipens are kept in our first aid kits at the school for emergencies.

Children's toys or valuable items, unless specifically asked for by a teacher, should be kept at home. It is difficult sometimes for children to care for these properly at school and the chance of breakage is high.
Parents, friends and visitors to the school should report to the office when they arrive. Each visitor is required to sign in and out of the visitor's attendance book.
Rosedale Primary School is committed to providing a child safe environment where children and young people are safe and feel safe, and their voices are heard about decisions that affect their lives. Child Safe Standards are compulsory minimum standards for all Victorian schools, to ensure we are well prepared to protect children from abuse and neglect. All staff, volunteers and community members of Rosedale Primary School are required to observe child safe principles and expectations for appropriate behaviour towards and in the company of students. For further information see our policies below or the Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority.
Other School Policies are constantly being updated to reflect current practice. These can be viewed, on request, at the general office.
