The use must be in keeping with the special character of the school at all times

Insurance:

Personal belongings of teachers need to be covered by their own All-Risks Policy. The school carries its own insurance. However, this will not include teachers’ individual valuables. Please take every care of your own valuables, (including money). Do NOT leave your purse or valuables lying around in your classroom or office

Laptops must not be left in vehicles. If your laptop is stolen from your car you will be required to cover the cost of replacement from your own insurance.

 

Keys:

The School Secretary is responsible for the issuing of all keys. Utmost care must be taken with all keys. All staff are issued with a classroom/admin block key. Weekends, early morning and after school the alarms are set and can only be disarmed with a code. All staff are issued with a code.

NB: Take care with the keys. If a key is lost it jeopardizes security and may result in a complete change of locks – at great expense costing several thousand dollars.

 

Lost Property:

Lost items should be reported to the School Office - if theft is suspected then a report should be made to the Principal.

 

Items found should be taken to the School Office where lost property is kept. Students and parents must have an office staff member present to unlock the drawers and wait while they check for their lost property.
