3.4:   Custody/ Separation Policy

The Staff of Sonna N.S. encourage parents experiencing separation to come and speak confidentially to the teachers and/or Principal.  It is our aim to handle such matters with sensitivity and compassion, and ultimately, our primary concern is for the well being and overall development of the child.

When a child spends time in two homes, it is requested that the school be provided with both sets of emergency/contact numbers.  Regarding the collection of child/ren from school - it is requested that the school be informed of any changes in collection arrangements by note.  It is the school policy to offer the option of separate parent/teacher meetings, if so desired (arranged in February/ March).

It is assumed that when we wish to communicate with parents regarding their child, the parent who is contacted (i.e. the parent with whom the child principally resides) will inform the other parent of meetings, arrangements etc.  Special requests for separate communication can be accommodated;
