Rules and policies

Every day, in every classroom and in the playground at Coopernook School we see the core values of our community in action.

Our values are reflected in:

  • the way our teachers interact with your child
  • how the children interact with each other
  • how we communicate with you, our family of parents and carers.

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.
