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 policies)

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.

Anti-bullying policy

At Hebersham Public School we recognise the right for all children to learn in a happy and safe environment. We teach students to respond to bullies by following these four steps:

  1. Stop – take a stand to stop bullying

  2. Brave talk– confidently tell bullies that you don't like what they are doing

  3. Walk away– move away from a bullying situation

  4. Report / get help – be a responsible reporter by telling a teacher about the problem.
