BARWICK SCHOOL POLICIES
Providing for and preserving a viable, safe environment that is conducive for learning is paramount at Barwick School. The school continues to be proactive in the goal of maintaining a safe and secure environment where a holistic and quality education is provided for. Read the policies which govern and structure our school.
Barwick is a Co-Educational Multicultural Independent Primary Weekly Boarding School rooted in the diversity of Zimbabwean Culture. In accordance with the school’s Diversity and Inclusion Policy, admission is open to any child heedless of race, social class, origin, ethnicity or nationality. As an Independent School the ability of parents to pay the fees is a consideration. There are however a limited number of bursaries which can be applied for.
ICT Acceptable Use policy
The aim of this Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) is to ensure that users which include the teaching and non-teaching staff, the school children and parents alike, can benefit from learning opportunities offered by the school’s online resources and platforms in a safe and effective manner. Internet use and access is considered a school resource and privilege. If the school’s AUP is not upheld by users of the Barwick Information Communication Technology (ICT) resources and adhered to, this privilege will be withdrawn and appropriate prohibitive sanctions, as outlined in the AUP, will be imposed on the user.
Child Protection and SafeGuard policy
At the core of our drive to be a Caring school, we recognize our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children. We endeavor to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We will be consistently alert to the indications of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice, whilst striving more for prevention. Every learner must feel safe and protected from any form of abuse. Through the policy, Barwick is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare and care of its pupils and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
School fees are reviewed annually in November for the new academic year ahead and are published by the Board of Governors to advise parents of the fee increases. However, in a hyper-inflation economic environment, as has been experienced in Zimbabwe recently, School Fees are reviewed regularly mostly every school term, by the Board of Governors.
