Year 7-10 Late Work Policy

Rationale
At Gleneagles Secondary College, we expect students to complete work to the best of their ability and to submit all major assessment tasks on time. The submission of work for assessment is an integral part of the teaching and learning process. At Gleneagles, we have developed a process that is equitable for all students and applied consistently across all sub schools and learning areas.

Guiding Principles
Gleneagles Secondary College aims:

  • To establish protocols and procedures that defines the process for students to submit work
  • To ensure transparency of process and equity of treatment among students.
  • To enable timely and coherent management of teaching and learning including feedback and administration of units.
  • To ensure that students understand the importance of completing and submitting work and the college empowers parents to support their child.
  • To provide a structured framework for students who need assistance in establishing a homework routine and/or who have difficulty in effectively managing time to meet deadlines.

Implementation
The following guidelines will be adhered to in relation to this policy:

  • The submission of all assessment material by the due date is the responsibility of the student. Students must plan their workloads to meet deadlines.
  • Submission items and dates will be clearly communicated to students, parents/guardians via Learning Tasks.
  • Assessment tasks should normally be submitted to the teacher directly. Online submission is allowed where the teacher has given this method as an option or requirement.
  • Any student who is late for submitting an assessment task will have a ‘Years 7-10 Late Work’ (Stage 1) entry completed on COMPASS (this will provide the parent and student with details of the revised deadline and appropriate redemption methods)
  • In the event of this assessment task not being submitted by the revised date the student will have a ‘Years 7-10 Late Work’ (Stage 2) entry completed on their COMPASS account.
  • If the student fails to respond to interventions put in place and the task is not submitted after Stage 2 the sub school will enact the appropriate action to address this issue.
  • Gleneagles Secondary recognises that, on occasion, meeting submission deadlines is difficult due to extended absence, illness and medical conditions. In these cases, the student and their mitigating circumstances will be considered by the relevant subs school and the appropriate action and support plans will be devised to support the student and teacher(s).

Natasha’s Story – Student Voice

The Student Voice Committee allows groups of students to work towards positive changes while representing the entire student body. Being involved in this program was an exciting way for me to begin my year and has presented me with a variety of learning experiences. The Student Voice selection process enables applicants to gain confidence whilst completing an interview. My participation has benefited my group work and public speaking. I now have the chance to gather feedback from other students and bring forth their opinions to the Student Voice Committee. As a member, I also had the opportunity to become a junior school captain. After putting the speech writing skills I learned in the committee to the test, I was fortunate enough to be elected. I’m proud to be a leader of the junior school and especially pleased to be gaining valuable life skills. Being a leader has made my time at Gleneagles challenging, interesting and rewarding.
