If your child contracts an infectious illness, they must be excluded from school.

Childhood immunisations

Children should be fully immunised before starting school. On enrolling your child, you must present your child’s immunisation records. If your child is not immunised they will be asked to stay home if another child has contracted a disease. Length will vary on the infectious disease.

No hat, no play policy

In the interests of your child’s health and well-being, our school has a “no hat, no play in the sun” policy which operates for the entire school year.

Behaviour management

Our school community wants everyone to feel they are valued and respected and feel safe to teach and learn in a happy place. To encourage this, we support a behaviour management policy that rewards good, responsible behaviour. There are consequences for behaviour that affects another student or teacher’s rights to enjoy our school. This policy applies all the time your child is in school, whether in or out of the classroom.

A copy of the behaviour management policy is available from the office.
