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 rules)

As well as following the department’s operational policies, we have developed frameworks for our students in line with our school’s values and commitments.

Lost property

All personal items, especially clothing, brought to school should be clearly marked with the pupil’s name. All effort is made to return lost property. Where the owner’s name is not apparent the clothes are placed in lost property. Parents are requested not to allow their children to bring expensive or delicate items to school.

Mobile phones

Many students and their families own a mobile phone. We recognise some parents/guardians request that their child or children bring a mobile phone to school for before and after school safety/security reasons. These devices must be switched off and secured safely in students bags at all times during school hours. If you need to bring a mobile phone to school we require the student and parent to read and sign our agreement.
