Port Noarlunga Primary School

Policies and Guidelines

Behaviour Management Policy

Our school has a policy to provide a safe environment in the yard and classroom. Students are taught the school rules and consequences for inappropriate behavior. Serious offences can be disciplined by suspension and/or exclusion from school.

Our Behaviour Management Policy is based on our school values of Respect, Responsibility, Independence, Caring and Honesty.

Sunsmart practices at Port Noarlunga Primary School.

The Uniform Policy states that all students must wear a broad brim hat outside during Term 1, 3 & 4. Students do not have to wear their hats during the cooler months of Term 2 in line with the latest research and recommendations from the Australian Cancer Council.

The hot weather policy offers alternative indoor areas for recess and lunch breaks. Large shade structures cover the playground equipment and sandpits.

Students are encouraged to wear sunscreen. Students must supply and apply their own sunscreen. Students must wear sun-safe clothing at any time school uniform is not worn (eg casual days, to and from swimming/aquatics including Beach Carnival).
