Attendance

Attending school is vital. It enables students to reach their full educational potential and to actively participate and engage in learning.

At Hume Central Secondary College we have high expectations regarding full time attendance. All students are required to attend no less than 90% of the College program without a medical certificate. Students who fail to meet this requirement may risk their chances of successfully completing their year of study.

Student Engagement and Wellbeing - Student Learning Behaviour Policy

Respectful relationships are intrinsic to a positive and engaging school environment. Every member of our College is responsible for creating and promoting a positive and safe learning environment.

The purpose of the Student Learning Behaviour Policy (SLBP) is to:

  • establish a cooperative, supportive and safe environment where effective teaching and learning occurs
  • define appropriate behaviour that will lead to effective teaching and learning
  • establish processes that focus on prevention and early intervention to create a positive school culture

We recognise the values that underpin the Student Learning Behaviour Policy:

  • the right to learn and the responsibility to allow others to learn
  • the right to feel safe and comfortable and the responsibility to allow others to feel comfortable and safe
