Within a twelve-month calendar year, the first and second instances of a child breeching Jamboree Heights OSHCs Rules of Behaviour, an educator will complete and sign an Incident Report form, the parent /guardian will be required to sign the Incident Report form upon review with the educator or Coordinator. The Incident Report form will be kept in the individual child's file.

 

A third incident, after the above steps have been followed, will require a letter to be sent to the parent/guardian form the Jamboree Heights State School OSHC Management team stating the child cannot attend Jamboree Heights OSHC for one week.

 

At the end of the week a meeting will be held with the Coordinator and/or Assistant Coordinator and the parents/guardians to discuss possible strategies for the inclusion of the child back within Jamboree Heights OSHC. The date of this meeting will be arranged upon suspension and must be conducted prior to the child’s readmittance at JHOSHC. If this meeting is not completed, the child will not be able to attend OSHC.
