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:
The NSW Department of Education's School Attendance Policy states that all students who are enrolled at school, regardless of their age, are expected to attend that school whenever instruction is provided.
If your child/children are going to be absent for an extended period of time due to travel, greater than 10 school days, please fill out an Application for Extended Leave - Travel, prior to the absence and return it to the school.
Extended absences for other reasons should be applied for in writing prior to the absence.
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.
