At HEPS we have a number of policies to build an inclusive and respectful school community, communicate important issues transparently and establish a framework for good decision-making for common school-based issues.

Schools are required to have set policies for accreditation and Department of Education requirements.  At HEPS all of our policies are based on the DET templates, with HEPS specific information and processes added.

The Education Sub-Committee at HEPS is responsible for the review when required for each policy, this is between 1 and 3 years, unless required earlier.  The sub-committee presents policies to the school council for their endorsement.  Once policies are ratified by the council, the updated versions are published for the community on Compass and our school website.
