Policy Statement

KingsGate School is a Christian community of learning where every member is highly valued as an image bearer of Christ. It is a place where all have the opportunity to encounter the living God and become true disciples. We do this through living as authentic followers of Christ who recognise the Bible is the Word of God and foundational to all we do. As the BOT of a State Integrated School we are committed to students, parents and caregivers, the community and education itself. In order to serve effectively we are also committed to our own growth and wellbeing. We commit ourselves to professional standards of conduct in all we do. The BOT is committed to ethical conduct in all areas of its responsibilities and authority.


Procedural Guidelines

All Trustees shall:

Maintain, understand and be loyal to the values and mission of the school.

Ensure that the Special Character of the school is upheld and role modeled.

Ensure the needs of all students and their achievement is paramount.

Represent the school in a positive manner.

Respect the professional position of the Principal and staff.

Observe the confidentiality of non-public information acquired in their role as Trustees and not disclose to any other persons such information that might be harmful to the school or to individuals.

Be diligent in attending BOT meetings fully prepared to participate in decision making.

Ensure individual Trustees do not act independently of the BOT’s decisions.

Speak with one voice through its adopted policies and ensure that any disagreements with the BOT’s stance are resolved within the BOT.

Avoid any conflicts of interest with respect to their fiduciary responsibility.

Recognise that individual Trustees and subgroups make recommendations to the BOT and that only the full BOT has the authority to direct the Principal or staff.

Continually recognise that only the Chair, (working within the BOT’s agreed Chair role description or delegation), or a delegate working under a written delegation, can speak for the BOT.

Continually self-monitor their individual performance as Trustees against policies and any other current BOT evaluation tools.

Be willing to participate in professional development opportunities in order to make an effective contribution.
