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.

For more information about compulsory school attendance, visit:

Students record their attendance electronically when they sign on using their student ID card at the sign-in window. Teachers also mark attendance for each class. 

If you forget your swipe card, the office staff can manually mark your attendance at the sign-in window. Here you can ask for a new card if you need one, or collect your replacement card.

If students do not sign in, a text message will automatically be sent to their parent/s. Students who are away for a full day need a note to explain their absence. Parents may do this through the Skoolbag App, text message, phone call, or hard copy note.

Late arrival

Students can sign-in at the front office, where they will be issued a ticket they can show their teacher.

Early leave

Students wishing to leave early will need a permission note given to Mr Stewart for a leave pass. Upon leaving, students will need to sign out at the front office.

Sick at school

If a students falls ill at school, they are to report to their teacher if in class, and head to the front office where they can be put into sick bay and consulted by a First Aid Officer. If the student needs to go home, the office will contact parents.

School frameworks

The following frameworks apply to students at our school.


When students wear a school uniform, they feel included in our school community.

Students, teachers, parents and carers, as well as members of our local community helped develop our school uniform to make sure it:

  • meets the requirements of occupational health and safety, anti-discrimination and equal opportunity legislation

  • includes items that are affordable, comfortable and made from easy-care and easy-wear fabrics

  • is appropriate for the full range of school activities

  • is suitable for all body shapes.
