Updates to existing policies to keep them current and to correct inaccuracies.

Maintenance does not involve changes to the policy’s intent or purpose, policy users still recognise the policy, and there is no impact on school operations and implementation. It may include changing the policy statement or implementation document(s) to:

  • update contact details

  • update formatting

  • update hyperlinks

  • correct typographical errors

  • align documents with the department’s style guide.

You may also need to update related documents or links.

Each time you update or review your policy, there is a process to follow (outlined under 'Key steps to get started'). This ensures compliance with our policy process and templates, as well as with the department's record keeping requirements.

School Policy and Information Management will work with you to update your policy quickly, and can help you with this type of review at any time.
