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

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.

Student welfare: Bee System

Camden South Public School promotes and maintains a positive learning environment through consistent modelling and encouragement of safe and respectful behaviour.

Our aim is to build positive behaviour for a safe and successful learning environment for staff and students. Our outcomes are driven by performance and behavioural data and our approach is constantly evolving and changing in order to meet the needs of our school.


2017 PBL Re-Launch

K-6 students participated in our Positive Behaviour for Learning Re-Launch Day. Students were involved in interactive lessons about Being Safe, Respectful and a learner in all areas of the school. Well done to our Parliament and TEAM members who delivered each of their lessons to our students.

  • Displaying appropriate behaviour in the classroom and on the playground
