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.

Rewards and Fair Discipline 

This document has been developed by the Bellambi Public School Positive Behaviour For Learning Team. Its purpose is to provide all staff with convenient access to the schools reward and fair discipline systems.

It recognises and supports procedural fairness in all dealings, and the critical role fair discipline has in supporting the aspirations of our students. Fair discipline depends largely upon the interpersonal relationships that exist between all members of the School community and is responsive to change.
