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.

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.


Excursion Code of Conduct

It is important students and parents understand the high standards of behaviour expected on this excursion:

Promoting the welfare and safety of all students at Jindabyne High School is our highest priority.

As a student they are expected to:

  • Speak and behave courteously and cooperate with teacher instructions
  • Obey all safety rules whilst on the bus, at the excursion site and in the accommodation
  • Not to leave any location alone or without permission.
  • Be in the right place at the right time
  • Not be in possession of banned substances. This includes but is not limited to: weapons, illegal drugs, alcohol and tobacco.
  • Treat others respectfully and use appropriate language
  • Dress appropriately by complying with the schools uniform or dress code
  • Model and follow departmental and school codes of behaviour and conduct
  • Avoid dangerous behaviour and encourage others to avoid dangerous behaviour

Students who do not abide by the Code of Conduct may, for their own safety, be removed from the excursion at the discretion of the Principal or the Deputy Principal. This will mean a parent or caregiver may need to attend the excursion and collect the student. Further disciplinary action may also need to be considered upon their return to school.
