This school is an independent school and differs from most in that it is the parents of the students govern and administer the school in compliance and regulations.
The school is an incorporated association. All parents/guardians are encouraged to become members of the association.
Members of the association elect the school committee at the annual general meeting (AGM). The school committee legally holds the responsibility for administering and governance within the school. The school committee is required to attend all meetings, induction, professional development and oversea the operation of the school in compliance and governance. The school committee positions are President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer and three Ordinary Members. At the AGM, members of the association also elect the Public Officer and Child Protection Officer. Financial transparency is ensured by the engagement of an independent provider of accounting services.
Tambelin Independent School is a member of The Association of Independent Schools of NSW (AISNSW). The AISNSW is an umbrella association from which the school takes industrial, legal and managerial advice.
Tambelin Independent School, as an incorporated association, is run according to its Model Rules and Constitution. These are available on request. All members of the association agree to abide by these when they pay the membership fee and sign the membership form.
