Governance Documents and Policies

Strategic Plan

In 2016, the Rockingham Montessori School community held strategic planning workshops at the Karnup campus, and developed five strategic pillars that form the foundation of the living document that is the RMS Strategic Plan. These pillars are:

  1. School growth, financial stability and marketing
  2. Comprehensive adolescent program options
  3. Delivery of best practice in Montessori education and curriculum
  4. Focus on environment and sustainability
  5. Development of School culture.

The Board has prepared a summary of achievements since the Strategic Plan was developed and outlined specific emphases for the remainder of 2018/2019. Please download the pdf documents below.

 

Constitution

The School’s constitution is the document which sets out the rules for how the School governs itself. Inherent in these rules are fundamental beliefs about what the School aims to do, how the School makes decisions, and who is responsible for what.

 

Reporting

The School prepares an Annual Report which includes a wide variety of information including the educational program, staffing, finance and governance. Based on each calendar year, the report takes several months to collate and prepare and is accepted by the membership at the AGM.

 

Parent Handbook

Parents receive a Parent Handbook when a child enrols at Rockingham Montessori School.

 

Policies

School policies guide decision-making day-to-day and provide clarity, transparency and consistency. They are also required by external agencies, in particular the Department of Education Services and the Department for Consumer Protection.
