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.

PBL Expectations

As a NSW Department of Education school, Repton Public School “is committed to creating quality learning opportunities for children and young people. This includes strengthening their cognitive, physical, social, emotional and spiritual development. Parents entrust their children and young people to principals, teachers and school staff with confidence that schools will deliver on this agenda.” (The Wellbeing Framework for Schools, Department of Education). It is our commitment that we will deliver on this agenda.

The Repton Public School Student Wellbeing implementation strategy is structured according to the NSW Department of Education Wellbeing for Schools Framework. It describes student wellbeing in three main areas: Connect, Succeed and Thrive, and outlines how we will promote and maintain student wellbeing at Repton Public School. The policy aims to guide our students in the development of positive behaviours and respectful attitudes and relationships which will serve them well for their time at school and beyond. It has a focus on fostering respectful relationships throughout the school community.
