Emergency Management

A situation involving a potentially violent intruder at an early childhood service or school may be the most significant emergency that such a facility may ever encounter. These emergencies develop with unpredictability and speed and may be carefully planned or completely random. Fortunately these types of situations are rare in Australia. Where they have occurred overseas they are usually over within several minutes. What has also been learned from international experience is that these events don’t follow a predictable pattern so it is not possible to establish a single set of response procedures.

VCE Handbook

Fountain Gate Secondary College Assessment Policy is designed to ensure that all students have access to fair and equal opportunities in their VCE. The result of the completion of a unit will either be ‘S’ (Satisfactory), ‘N’ (Not Satisfactory) or ‘J’ (did not complete unit due to attendance or withdrawal from subject). In order for students to achieve a satisfactory result, they must satisfy the requirements set out in the VCAA Study Design. Fountain Gate Secondary College believes that in order to maximise students’ potential and achievement in the VCE, students must be punctual and attend all timetabled classes. In accordance with the Victorian Curriculum Assessment Authority (VCAA) requirements, Fountain Gate Secondary College believes students should attend all timetabled and pre-arranged classes. We believe that this will allow students sufficient class time to successfully complete set class work, School Assessed Tasks (SAT’s) and School Assessed Coursework (SAC’s). Student attendance/absence falls under the following main categories in accordance with VCAA: Not Present (school explained), Not Present (parent explained), and Not Present (unexplained). In addition to these categories, the attendance will either be documented as ‘VCE compliant’, or not. In order for the absence to be ‘VCE Compliant’ certain legal documentation including original medical certificate, funeral notice or court notice needs to be provided.
