Purpose

To ensure that parent payment practices are consistent, transparent and ensure that all children have access to the standard curriculum.

Rationale

The Victorian community shares a vision to build an education system that champions excellence and ensures that every child and young person has access to the opportunities to succeed in life, regardless of their background or circumstances. Schools are best placed to make local decisions which ensure that all students can access a broad range of learning opportunities that support their expectations and promote their aspirations as they move through the education system. Parent contribution, in all forms, assists schools to provide an enriched learning and teaching program for every student and is highly valued by school communities. Learning and teaching programs vary across schools based on local needs and circumstances and reflect each school's priorities, decisions and resources. This, in turn, informs the parent payment charges approved by school councils that may vary from one school to the next.

Plagiarism Policy

According to the Oxford dictionary “plagiarism” means –“the wrongful appropriation or purloining, and publication as one’s own, of the ideas, or the expression of the ideas (literary, artistic, musical, mechanical, etc.) of another”. Plagiarism is an act of fraud. It involves knowingly stealing someone else’s work and lying about it afterwards. Students must strive for their personal best, and seek honest feedback on their work in order to learn and improve. Cheating and plagiarism interferes with the assessment and feedback process that is necessary in order to promote academic growth.

Aim:

This policy is developed as a guide for teachers, Domain Leaders, Sub School Leaders, students, parents and members of the school community. No policy, however comprehensive, can predict all the incidents which might occur in this area of concern. Any staff member that suspects a student has plagiarised, colluded or cheated must report the incident to the Domain Leader and file the incident onto Compass. Additionally, any student or students who observe plagiarism, collusion or cheating must report the incident immediately to the subject teacher.
