Our school uses the department's School Community Charter to ensure all of our communication is collaborative and respectful.

Positive Behaviour for Learning 

At Briar Road Public School, we empower students to become safe, respectful, learners by promoting a holistic approach that values the whole child and their wellbeing. As a school, we promote lifelong learning in all aspects of school life. Students are encouraged to achieve their personal best, strengthen attributes of cooperation and resilience and engage in active, healthy and sustainable lifestyles.

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.
