Policies and procedures
Student discipline in Government Schools Policy
The Department is committed to supporting a positive approach to student discipline. The Student Discipline in Government Schools Policy provides a framework for schools to develop a school discipline policy that suits the local context, in consultation with the school community.
Suspension and Expulsion of School Students - Procedures
Student suspension and expulsion are strategies schools can use within the context of student wellbeing and discipline policies. The Suspension and Expulsion of School Students - Procedures provides details of the process schools must follow when considering these options.
Bullying of Students - Prevention and Response Policy
The Bullying of Students - Prevention and Response Policy sets out the requirements for preventing and responding to student bullying in NSW government schools.
