Rules and policies

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

  • Be courteous
  • Be cooperative
  • Be caring

Huntingdon Public School is a Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) School. Positive Behaviour for Learning is a consistent, school wide system of support that helps to define, teach and support appropriate student behaviours, creating a positive school environment. It is designed to be responsive to the individual school's current social and educational needs and encourages schools to reflect on their systems and practices to determine if they are having a positive impact on student learning.

The students at Huntingdon Public School are learning how to show our 3C values of being courteous, being cooperative and being caring in a wide range of settings. Each class is proud to present a 3C Student of the Week award at our Friday Assembly.

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.
