Rules and policies

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

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.

Anti-bullying policy

Bullying behaviour has three key features. It involves the intentional misuse of power in a relationship. It is ongoing and repeated, and it involves behaviours that can cause harm. The NSW Department of Education requires all NSW public schools to have an Anti-bullying Plan which details the strategies implemented to reduce student bullying behaviours.

The Ermington Public School Anti-bullying Plan 2018 can be downloaded by clicking on the link below. Please visit the NSW anti-bullying website at https://antibullying.nsw.gov.au/ for further information.
