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.

If you are having difficulty getting your child to attend school regularly, please contact your class teacher or the school principal for assistance.

If your child is absent from school for any reason, please notify the school as soon as possible. Explanations for full day absences are submitted via our School Bytes App. Advice regarding late arrivals, leaving early or part day absences can be provided by emailing the school and the class teacher.

If a reason for your child's absence has not been provided, you will receive an email requesting an explanation.
