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.

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:

Parents are requested to send a note to the class teacher advising the reason for your child's absence from school.  Blank absence notes are provided to parents in the clear wallet issued to all families.

Class teachers advise the Principal after a student has been absent without reason for 3 consecutive days, or for 6 days within any three month period, where no or an unsatisfactory explanation has been given.

Suggestions that may help if your child has been, or is going to be absent.

  • Is or was sick: advise your child's teacher by note.
  • Has an appointment: advise your child's teacher by note.
  • Is going on vacation: advise your child's teacher of the anticipated length of absence.
