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.

Our school uses the department's School Community Charter to ensure all of our communication is collaborative and respectful.

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 and remain in school, employment or training until they turn 17.

School frameworks (school policies)

Our six school rules define how students are expected to behave so that everyone can learn in a happy and harmonious environment. They are displayed and used everywhere in the school, including classroom rules.

Our six school rules are:

  • We share voice space
  • We follow instructions
  • We use build ups
  • We keep our hand, feet and objects to ourselves
  • We own our own behaviour
  • We all have the right to feel safe all the time

Any behaviour that infringes on other people's safety such as harassment, bullying or any illegal behaviour will not be tolerated at our school.
