School Docs

Our school has been working with SchoolDocs to create a website for our policies and procedures. We are excited to announce that the site is now live and available to our school community.

The school works on a subscription basis with SchoolDocs to maintain, update, and review our policies. SchoolDocs provides us with a comprehensive core set of policies, which have been well researched and align with the National Education and Learning Priorities. The policies and procedures are tailored to our school, and the school supplies specific information such as our charter, and procedures for behaviour management, reporting to parents, etc.

SchoolDocs updates, modifies, or creates policies in response to changes in legislation or Ministry guidelines, significant events, reviews/requests from schools, and regular reviewing from the SchoolDocs team. Our school board has the opportunity to view changes/additions and comment on them before they are implemented. We will advise you when policies are up for review and how you can take part in the review.

We invite you to visit the site at (note that there’s no “www.”). Our username is “newton” and our password is available in our newsletter or email: 


Sugary drinks, especially ‘fizzy’ drinks with high sugar levels are not welcome at school.Providing your child with their own drink bottle filled with water is our preference. We also have water fountains outside the classrooms.  Students are welcome to refill their bottles when necessary.
