Student Supervision

Student safety at is our highest priority and the safe and appropriate supervision of students is an important element of our duty of care to students. Part of this duty is ensuring parents and students are aware of our student supervision arrangements before and after school.

Before school: School grounds are supervised from 8.40am to 8.50am which includes central plaza, bike sheds and exits.

After school: School grounds are supervised from 3.10pm until 3.20pm which includes central plaza, bike sheds and exits. This excludes Home Learning Support Club on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 3.15pm - 4.15pm.

Students on school grounds outside these times will not be supervised (unless they are attending a supervised extracurricular activity).

Parents/carers are requested to ensure that students do not attend school outside of these supervised times unless they are attending a pre-arranged supervised activity.

For further information about our student supervision arrangements or to obtain a copy of our school’s Yard Duty and Supervision Policy, please contact the school office. This policy includes our student supervision arrangements across the school day, including before and after school.
