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.

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.

At Banksia Road Primary School we have 4 school rules:

1. Respect yourself, others and their property.

2. Work Hard and learn as much as you can.

3. Be in the right place at the right time.

4. Be safe and sensible.

Banksia Road Public School adopts a school-wide Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) approach to support student engagement and wellbeing. Through this proactive process, we provide clear, consistent expectations for behaviour to develop a safe, respectful learning environment for our students and teachers.
