Most schools adapt a Code of Conduct that provides guidelines as to how the school is to operate and the expectations of its staff. The school will be bound by these Codes of Conduct.
A Code of Conduct may address the following ty pes of matters:
- Equal employment opportunities;
- Equality of students;
- Duty of care owed to students;
- Standards expected of teachers, eg to have the highest regard for the safety of students;
- Prohibitions on discrimination;
- Workplace, health and safety matters;
- Complaint handling process;
- Sanctions available against staff and students.
If you, as a parent or member of staff, suspect that there has been a breach of the Code of Conduct by the school, we recommend you contact our office and arrange an appointment to see one of our Education & Schools Law Solicitors in our Sydney office. By appointment, we can also arrange a time for you to see one of our lawyers at a branch office. For a complete listing please see our "Locations" tab.
