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.

We are delighted to share with you our school's comprehensive plans aimed at fostering a safe, inclusive, and positive learning environment for all students. As part of our ongoing commitment to promoting student well-being and academic success, we have developed robust strategies in three key areas: antibullying, digital device and online services usage, and the management of mobile phones within school premises. 

At our school, we believe that every student has the right to learn and thrive in an environment free from bullying and harassment. To this end, we have devised and Anti-bullying Plan 2024 (pdf 993.7 KB) based on education and awareness, reporting and strengthening peer support. 

In today's digital age, it is essential to equip our students with the skills and knowledge to navigate online spaces safely and responsibly. Our school's Digital Devices and Online Services Plan 2024 (PDF 75.7 KB) includes a focus on digital literacy and appropriate use of digital devices and online services.

Tweed Heads South Public School supports the restrictions of mobile phones in accordance with the NSW Department of Education. Our Students Use of Mobile Phones in Schools Management Plan 2024 (PDF 137.7 KB) outlines our approach to the policy and in line with the policy all mobile phones will be handed in and stored in the School Office for the full school day, including recess and lunch.

NSW public schools teach and model the inclusive behaviours we value in our students. For more information view the Behaviour for students code (PDF 973 KB).
