Rules and policies

Rules and policies are in place to make sure your child remains safe and well at school.

Our school uses the department's School Community Charter to ensure all of our communication is collaborative and respectful.

Work health & safety 

The NSW Department of Education believes that the provision of a safe working and learning environment for everyone at its workplaces is an integral and essential part of its responsibilities as a provider of public education and other community services.

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.

Young people below the age of 17 who have completed Year 10 must be:

  • in school, or registered for home schooling 

  • in approved education or training, such as a traineeship, apprenticeship or TAFE

  • in full-time paid employment (average 25 hours a week) 

  • in a combination of work, education and/or training (average of 25 hours a week combined).

Students 17 years and over who are enrolled in school must attend school regularly to meet HSC course requirements. 

As a parent or carer, you are responsible for ensuring your child attends school every day when they are of compulsory school age. You must explain all absences to the school within 7 days.

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.

Mobile phones at school 

To ensure the safety of students is prioritised and that educational outcomes for students are maximized, through the appropriate use of technology, mobile phones will no longer be permitted at school. This procedure has been developed by Bossley Park High School in consultation with the Community Support Group (CSG).

Mobile phones and earphones/airpods must not be used on school premises for any purpose. (this includes the classroom and playground)

Anti-Bullying Plan 

Bossley Park High School aims to have a positive culture where bullying is unacceptable. In alignment with our Positive Behaviours for Learning framework, all members of the school community should be treated respectfully, be able learn, and feel safe and secure in the school environment. 

The plan outlines the processes for taking reasonable steps to prevent and respond to student bullying in our school and reflects the Bullying: Preventing and Responding to Student Bullying in Schools Policy of the New South Wales Department of Education.
