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 and remain in school, employment or training until they turn 17.

Learning and Support Policy and Procedures 

Learning and support resources are available in every mainstream school to help any student experiencing difficulties in learning in a mainstream class, regardless of the cause. 

Schools use their allocations of learning and support resources to personalise the learning for the individual needs of their students.

The Faulconbridge Public School Learning and Support Policy and Procedures document outlines how this is implemented in our school. 

Homework policy

Faulconbridge Public School acknowledges the benefits of homework.  It provides students with opportunities to consolidate their classroom learning; it encourages work habit skills for lifelong learning beyond the classroom and involves family members in the learning process.  The setting of homework should take into account the need for students to have a balanced lifestyle.   This includes sufficient time for family, recreation and cultural pursuits

Anti Bullying Plan

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.

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.
