II. PARENTS & COMMUNITY
The Parents and Citizens’ Association of the school is recognised in legislation (Education Act 1990) as the voice of that school community. The Parents and Citizens’ Association is the recognised body from which school community representatives are elected and to which they report back.
P&C Federation supports the position of individual educational and developmental needs met by a range of differential services expressed through appropriate and well planned curricula, programs and environments conducted by sensitive and well-trained personnel in conjunction with parents and families. Staff working in the Special Education and Gifted Talented field must have an understanding of, and commitment to the concept that every individual is of value. School staff and parents/carers will work in partnership to identify early, assess and cater for the needs of the individual. This will be supported by pre-service, and ongoing professional training affordable and accessible to all school staff and parents/carers.
Schools have a responsibility to meet the educational needs of each individual student and the school community they serve. All Public Schools shall provide education that is free, secular, equitable and of the highest quality.
Governments must as a priority provide and fund the Public School System in New South Wales to the highest standard in accordance with Universal best practice.
