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 Bangor Public School, we value, acknowledge and support students to engage in pro social behaviours as outlined in our Student Expected Behaviours. We are a PBL (positive behaviour for learning) school and our practices reflect this. Teachers manage inappropriate behaviours in a fair and timely manner as outlined in the Student Behaviour and Consequence Matrix. Restorative practices and conversations are widespread and consistent, promoting positive relationships amongst all stakeholders.

We highly value community feedback and welcome feedback on our practices and process.
