Allergy and Anaphylaxis Policy
Anaphylaxis is potentially life threatening and always requires an emergency response.

Assessment and Reporting Policy
At Our Lady of the Way Primary School, we believe that planning, programming, assessing and reporting in the primary curriculum involves the consideration of the individual learning needs of all students and the creation of a learning environment that assists students to achieve the outcomes of the syllabus.
The school recognises the importance of involvement and engagement with parents and carers of students and the ability of students to self-manage their asthma where appropriate.
Our Lady of the Way Homework Policy takes into account the need for students to have a balanced lifestyle. This includes sufficient time for family, recreation and cultural pursuits. The responsibility for overseeing homework lies essentially with the parents. Homework need not be a cause of stress or upset for children or parents. The emphasis should always be placed on the learning value.
