1804 Operations Policy Review Report - Personnel - 4 April 2018

Personnel Policy

  • The Kaikohe East Board's Personnel Policy is part of the board's Operations Policy and is published on the school website.
  • It is restated here for board members' convenience:


The board delegates responsibility to the principal all matters relating to the management of staff. Therefore the principal may not fail to:
    • Ensure that personnel policies and procedures comply with current employment legislation
    • Ensure that staff are managed in a sound, fair, and respectful manner in accordance with the terms of their current employment agreements
    • Ensure that all employees’ rights to personal dignity, safety and access to an approved and fair internal grievance process are maintained
    • Take reasonable steps to protect staff from unsafe or unhealthy working conditions
    • Ensure that all required staff are registered or have a current Limited Authority to Teach
    • Ensure that all staff have an annual performance appraisal
    • Provide a smoke free environment
    • Provide Protective Disclosure protection

Principal's Interpretation

  • My interpretation of the board's requirements in this area is that the board wants to be assured that it is acting as a good employer and meeting all its obligations to its employees.

Data to Verify that the Policy Interpretation is Being Fulfilled

  • The Personnel section of the online staff handbook contains procedures that are developed in consultation with staff to ensure that the board's requirements are met.
  • All staff were given the opportunity to respond to a survey of their perceptions of whether or not the principal is meeting the requirements of the policy.

Link to Summary of Survey Results


  • Survey results suggest that the board's requirements are being met.
