Suspension and Expulsion Policy

All students and staff have the right to be treated fairly and with dignity in an environment free from disruption, intimidation, harassment and discrimination.

There will be cases of unacceptable behaviour where it will be in the best interests of the school community and/or the student involved, for the student to be removed from the school for a period of time or completely. Suspension and expulsion are the options available to the principal in these situations.

At Narara Valley High School, we believe in the values of Respect, Responsibility and Personal Best. We encourage all members of our school community to exemplify these values by:

  • Respecting our school rules
  • Taking responsibility for our actions and behaviour
  • Striving to achieve our personal best in all that we do

There are times where Suspension and Expulsion procedures are implemented at Narara Valley High School and the principles of procedural fairness are fundamental to the implementation. These procedures apply to the behaviour of students at school, on the way to and from school and while away from the school site on school endorsed activities. They can also apply outside of school hours and off school premises where there is a clear and close connection between the school and the conduct of students. This includes the use by a student of social networking sites, mobile phones and/or other technology to threaten, bully or harass another student or a departmental staff member for school related issues.

Further information about these procedures can be obtained from the Department of Education’s policy website.
