School Board

The role of School Board is outlined in the Education Act 1999. In essence, the role of School Board is one of setting the long-term future for the school and maintaining oversight (not management) of the implementation of the School Business Plan. It is not about running the school – that is the job of the Principal, but rather, about providing additional expertise to help the school achieve the best outcomes for students. Independent Public School (IPS) Board functions are consistent with the legislative role of a School Council.

The functions of a School Board are to:

Take part in:

  • establishing and reviewing from time to time, the school’s objectives, priorities and general policy directions;
  • the planning of financial arrangements necessary to fund those objectives, priorities and directions;
  • evaluating the school’s performance in achieving them; and
  • formulating codes of conduct for students at the school.

Determine, in consultation with students, their parents and staff a dress code for students when they are attending or representing the school;

Promote the school in the community;


  • charges and contributions for the provision of certain materials, services and facilities;
  • extra cost optional components of educational programs;
  • items to be supplied by a student for personal use in an educational program;
  • any agreements or arrangements for advertising or sponsorship in relation to the school.

Provide advice to the Principal of the school on:

  • a general policy concerning the use in school activities of prayers, songs and material based on religious, spiritual or moral values being used in a school activity as part of religious education; and
  • the implementation of special religious education.
