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.

Enrolment policy

Our enrolment policy outlines the procedures for enrolling students at Woolooware Public School. It explains the process for students who live within our school boundaries and for those students who live outside our school boundaries.

Behaviour level system

Woolooware Public School utilises a behaviour level system.  This level system provides clear communication about behaviour expectations and consequences that may be applied when students demonstrate inappropriate behaviour. 

Merit system

Students are much more likely to willingly choose appropriate behaviour when they feel that school is a place where they belong, are cared for, experience success, are able to make some decisions and enjoy themselves.  Students who feel alienated are more likely to disengage from learning.

Woolooware Public school uses a merit system and promotes a school culture in which students demonstrate acceptable behaviour both in and out of the classroom. The school employs many strategies to promote positive student behaviour. These strategies include the leadership opportunities that exist in the school, strategies used by individual class teachers and a whole school house point system.
