Policies and Procedures Resources
Why have policies and procedures in the tuckshop?
Murphy’s First Law states that “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong” and this a true adage in the school tuckshop.
As a rule, a policy sets out the “why” behind an action, while a procedure explains the “how”. They take the “personal” out of decisions and ways of doing things. They are what you fall back on instead of “well, we’ve just always done it that way”. They cover you when things go wrong; so it’s important to have them in place.
Every tuckshop needs policies and procedures to operate effectively and successfully. They guide how the tuckshop operates and can reduce the risk of liability. In addition, they promote consistency for both employees and the school community. It also helps when there is a change of staff.
The below policies and procedures are able to be personalised and modified to suit your unique business.
