Policies & Procedures

Policies and procedures 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.

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.

We take the safety of your child very seriously. Many of our students travel considerable distances and if they are not at school at the expected time and you have not contacted us we will phone you. Please show consideration for our Front Office staff and if your child is going to be absent please contact the school before 9.00 am. We are easy to contact. You can:

  • email the school (see contact details below or Contact Us)
  • phone at any time and leave a message  (see contact details below or Contact Us)
  • send a message through the Sentral portal.

CHS School Policies

As well as following the department’s operational policies, we have developed policies for our students in line with our school’s values and commitments.

Our school has developed a Communications and ICT policy based on the Department's School Community Charter to ensure all of our communication is collaborative and respectful.
