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.

Fair Discipline Code

For example if a student won't behave themselves during an activity then they will be unable to participate in that activity until they can cooperate with the remainder of the group.

While students are at school or involved in a school activity it is reinforced that at Bullarah Public School: 

  • Everyone participates
  • Everyone is special
  • Everyone helps and cares for each other.

We hope that parents will support and reinforce this policy.
