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.

For more information about compulsory school attendance, visit:

Absences from school must be explained by a note from the parent/guardian. The note must contain the child's name, date, and reason for the absence. This is a legal requirement and should be forwarded to the class teacher on the child's first day back at school following an absence.

Late arrivals and early leavers

Children who arrive late must collect a late note from the school office which is to be handed to the class teacher. Frequent lateness impacts on your child's learning and will be followed up by the school and the DET Home School Liaison Officer.
If parents need to collect their child/children from school early they must sign them out at the school office and collect an early leavers pass which is to be handed to the class teacher.

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.
