External School Review

Our education system aspires to become the best in Australia by seeking growth for every student, in every class and in every school.
The purpose of the External School Review (ESR) is to support schools to raise achievement, sustain high performance and to provide quality assurance to build and sustain public confidence in government schools.
The external school review framework is referenced throughout all stages of the ESR process.
This report outlines aspects of the school’s performance verified through the review process according to the framework. It does not document every aspect of the school’s processes, programs and outcomes.

Mobile Phone and Personal Digital Devices Policy

This policy is designed to facilitate the acceptable use of mobile phones and personal digital devices in Para Vista Preschool-7. It is based on the principles of mutual responsibility and respect for others.

The widespread ownership of mobile phones and Personal Digital Devices (PDD’s) among young people requires that school administrators, teachers, students, and parents take steps to ensure that they are used responsibly. A PDD includes such things as music players (iPods), photo/video players, game players and digital organisers this also includes the use of laptops and mobile internet connection devices. As technology develops, it creates variations and combinations. These and new devices will be included in this policy. This Acceptable Use Policy is designed to ensure that mobile phones and PDD’s are used positively in school by ensuring that potential issues are clearly understood and conflicts avoided, enabling their benefits to be enjoyed by our students. Students, their parents or care-givers must read and understand this Acceptable Use Policy, which also applies during school excursions, camps and extra-curricular activities.

Volunteer Policy

We believe that voluntary workers can make a significant contribution to the school community by giving their time and sharing their skills and expertise with others. Volunteers may have a wide range of interests and abilities that complement school programs, thus providing a wider range of interactions and experiences for students.

Behaviour Education & Wellbeing Policy

Anti-Bullying & Harassment Policy

At Para Vista Primary we believe that everyone has the right to feel safe. We are strong
believers in educating our students of the importance in being an ‘upstander’ to support our
school community. This policy explains what bullying is, how you can report it and what we
will do to stop it from happening. The purpose of this policy is to provide information to
students, staff and parents/caregivers about Anti-Bullying.

A definition of bullying:
Bullying is the use of targeted, intentional and ongoing unwanted behaviour towards another person with the intention of hurting, either physically or emotionally.
Bullying is not ‘one off’ incidents of harassment or teasing.

A place to embrace, connect and grow within our diverse community. We seek to make this hub a place to develop friendships, share ideas and break down barriers enabling us to have a strong community bond.

Our community hub is an avenue for our multicultural community to be embrace and celebrated.
