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.

Anti Bullying Plan

 

** IMPORTANT NOTICE **

Dear Parents/Carers and Students

This is a reminder that whilst students are in school uniform, every student is representing Mount Annan High School. The way students behave in public creates positive and negative perceptions of our school in the community.

Over the last couple of weeks, we have had complaints from the public concerning inappropriate behaviour and language of our students at Shopping Centres as well as dangerous and irresponsible pedestrian and cyclists’ behaviour on the roads.

Can we please ask that you remind your children of being respectful and sensible in public and how this impacts the brand of the school and the local community.

We want to ensure that all students arrive and leave our school safely and leave a positive presence within the community.
