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.
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.

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

Wontakalowa. Here at Charlestown East Public School, we would like to acknowledge the Elders who are the Traditional Custodians of this land, the Awabakal people and extend our respect to our neighbours, the Worimi people and Darkinjung people in which we are connected through the land, water and community. We would also like to acknowledge the Stolen Generation for which we remember the past and stand for the future of our present and emerging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
