SchoolDocs was established in 2006 as a user-friendly policy platform for schools in Aotearoa. Based in Ōtautahi Christchurch, the SchoolDocs team partners with schools across the motu to develop policies and procedures that keep pace with the changing educational environment.
SchoolDocs sites make policy information accessible to the whole school community. Each site contains a set of policies and procedures that is tailored to the school, and feedback from community members helps to ensure that the site reflects how the school operates.

SchoolDocs sites have a unique web address for each school. All members of the school community can access the site using these details.

Using the site
SchoolDocs sites are organised into sections that reflect operational requirements. The table of contents shows the key policy for each section, with dropdown menus that show supporting policies and procedures.

To find a policy or procedure, use the search function at the top left with a topic name or keyword. Related topics will appear in the table of contents window. Clicking on the topic you want to read and then closing the search will show where the topic sits in the table of contents. For a list of important policies and procedures, search for the Quick Links topics that are available for school staff, and parents and whānau.

Complaints Process

From time to time, parents may have a concern over their child’s education or something that is happening at the school. To ensure that these matters are dealt with effectively, we have a set of procedures for people to follow if they wish to bring these matters to our attention. In the first instance, it makes sense to discuss the issue with your child’s teacher as they are most likely to know and understand the circumstances that contribute to it. Sometimes for example, the child may be telling you about things that have not been brought to the attention of the teacher. If the matter is more serious or if parents feel they wish to take the matter further, they may wish to bring it to the attention of the Team Leader, Deputy Principal or Principal.

The School Board are only likely to deal directly with issues that are particularly serious or if parents have first gone through the steps outlined above. In these cases, the matter will need to be put in writing and delivered to the school office so that it can be passed onto the Board Chairperson. The issue is then likely to be dealt with at the next Board meeting and suitable action taken. A response from the Board will always be provided to the person who raised the issue. In summary then, the procedure is:

  • Discuss the issue with your child’s teacher
  • Discuss the issue with your child’s Team Leader
  • Request an appointment with the Deputy Principal or the Principal
  • Or if the matter is very serious and has already been raised with the Deputy Principal or Principal, parents can make a written submission to the School Board
