Rules and policies

Rules and policies are in place to make sure your child remains safe and well at school.

Visit the NSW Department of Education’s policy library for all current operational policies.

Attendance and absences

Students must attend school regularly so they can achieve their educational best and increase their career and life options.

In NSW, all children from the age of 6 are legally required to attend school or be registered for home schooling through the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA). All students must complete Year 10, or its equivalent.

Leaving early or arriving late

There are occasions when parents require their children to leave school early. A note explaining the reason and signed by the parent must be given to the child's class teacher.

Parents are required to sign the register which is located at the office before leaving the school. These procedures also apply to a child being late to class.

The following frameworks apply to students at our school.

  • Be proud of our school and take care of it.
  • Play safely in the right place.
  • Show respect for everyone's belongings.
  • Be kind, caring and polite to everyone.

No hat, no play

In an effort to reduce children's exposure to the harmful sun rays, we have a no hat, no play rule. A variety of shady trees and covered play areas are provided for children to play under.
