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.

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.

Students 17 years and over who are enrolled in school must attend school regularly to meet HSC course requirements.

Parents/carers, are responsible for ensuring your child attends school every day when they are of compulsory school age. You must explain all absences to the school within 7 days.
