Inclusive Policies

4910 schools and early learning services have added this Action to their RAP.

Staff in schools and early learning services should be aware of policies that refer specifically to improving educational outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and increasing knowledge of, and respect for, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures in Australia. Planning how to ensure all staff comply with these policies in their daily practice is important. Where possible, internal policies should be reviewed and amended to ensure they are also inclusive of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and increase knowledge of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures in Australia.
Policies are helpful documents that can support schools and early learning services to turn intentions into actions. Reconciliation should inform and be informed by wider policy, protocol and planning documents.
Schools and early learning services must adhere to some policies under law. Others are important in the school or early learning service management, like internal policies.
They help guide how to teach the students or children.
To build a more equal and equitable future for all Australians, policies must:
  • include Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people 
  • increase knowledge of, and respect for, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures in Australia. 
This is important even if there are no Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students or children attending the school or early learning service.
