1709 Legal Responsibilities Policy Review - 20 September 2017

Section of Operations Policy Being Reviewed

Legal Responsibilities

The principal will not fail to ensure that:

  • School procedures meet the legislative statutes and regulations as set down in the appropriate Acts, Ministry of Education circulars and the Education Gazette


  • The school is required to meet many legislative statutes and regulations.

  • The Education Review Office Board Assurance Statement brings the requirements together in their questionnaire. This provides a useful basis for the review of this section of the Operations Policy..

  • The board's Legal Responsibilities have been reviewed against the June 2017 version of the Education Review Office Board Assurance Statement questionnaire.
