Holy Trinity has a number of Policies, Procedures and important documents in place to ensure we:-
*meet the needs of Staff, Parents/Guardians, Committee, Children and the HTK Community
*reflect the values and beliefs in our Philosophy
*ensure current laws, legislation and regulations are adhered to.
Our policies and procedures also reflect the National Quality Framework (NQF). It comprises an overarching Framework of 7 quality areas and several elements under each quality area.
THE SEVEN QUALITY AREAS ARE:
- Educational program and practice
- Children’s health and safety
- Physical environment
- Staffing arrangements
- Relationships with children
- Collaborative partnerships with families and communities
- Leadership and service management.
The NQF is linked to national learning frameworks that recognise children learn from birth and outline practices to support and promote children’s learning.
- Belonging, Being and Becoming: The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (‘Early Years Learning Framework’)
- My Time, Our Place: Framework for School Age Care in Australia (‘Framework for School Age Care’). ‘ (source: ACECQA)

We will make all policy and procedures available via the website as they are progressively updated.
If you have comments about any document please forward them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Constitution was updated in 2010 and complies with the new Associations Incorporation Reform Act 2012 as we use our own rules (that is, not the model rules), these continue to be valid, but once members decide to make any changes, the rules must also address every item required under the new laws.
