Good Standing Policy

Good Standing Policy provides a system that assists in ensuring that the students maintain a satisfactory level of attendance, behavior and course participation.

Maintaining Good Standing requires:

  • Satisfactory attendance and punctuality
  • Completion of all course work and assessments
  • Satisfactory behavior

Satisfactory attendance is deemed to be fulltime attendance at school, or in the event of absence, a satisfactory explanation of the absence. Further explanation please refer to Attendance Policies:

  • An absence is defined as any non-attendance at a class when normal classes are in operation
  • An absence is deemed to be unsatisfactory if it is not explained or the explanation, in the view of the school is inadequate or inappropriate

Good Standing is lost when a student:

  • is absent without a written notice to the school and your teacher 2 working days prior to his/her absence
  • fails to complete the course work or assessments without satisfactory explanation
  • behaves in a way that is inappropriate and inclusive of staff and student rights

Good Standing privileges are reinstated when:

  • All absences are satisfactorily explained with a note from a parent/guardian; or
  • All missed work or assessments are completed or demonstrated to the relevant subject teacher within the time negotiated with the teacher; or
  • The behaviour management issue is satisfactorily resolved

Once a student has lost a stage of Good Standing, further breaches will incur loss of Good Standing at the next level.
