School operations


Flexible arrangements for school students

A flexible arrangement External Link allows all or part of a student's educational program to be delivered by another education provider such as a community organisation that offers special programs for children and young people, or another school (state or non-state).

Early and delayed entry to Prep

Early or delayed entry to Prep are options which may be considered in specific circumstances and where it is in a child's best educational interests.

Exemptions from compulsory schooling and compulsory participation

An exemption from compulsory schooling or the compulsory participation phase External Link is available when a child or a young person cannot attend or it would be unreasonable in all of the circumstances for them to attend school or participate in an eligible option for a period of more than ten consecutive school days.

For more information on circumstances where an exemption may apply see Circumstances for exemption from compulsory schooling.

Religious instruction
