  • College Policies

    Mobile Phone Policy 2019

    Craigieburn Secondary College understands that students may bring a personal mobile phone to school, particularly if they are travelling independently to and from school.

    At Craigieburn Secondary College:

     Students who choose to bring mobile phones to school must have them switched off and securely stored once a student has entered the school grounds as stated in the Craigieburn Secondary College Student Planner. Students may store their device at either the front office or in their locker at their own risk

     Exceptions to this policy may be applied if certain conditions are met (see below for further information)

     When emergencies occur, parents or carers should reach their child by calling the school’s office.

    Supporting documentation at:

    Note that this is a ministerial policy formally issued by the Minister for Education under section 5.2.1(2)(b) of the Education and Training Reform Act 2006.

  • Every Day Counts


    As a College, we have revised our Attendance Policy and procedures and have developed processes to support each family to assist their child/ren to achieve, where possible, 100% attendance.
    The following document Attendance Process for Families provides an outline of what we are implementing to account for student attendance at the College. 
    Families are encouraged to read to summary and contact us to discuss any issues or concerns. We welcome your feedback as the implementation of this process progress throughout the year. 
    Significant differences we would like to draw to your attention, include;
    1. Explained Approved Absences - these are absences where the explanation is reasonable
    2. Explained Unapproved Absences - these are absences where the school has determined the explanation is not reasonable
    3. Unexplained Absences - these are absences where no reasons have been provided
    The College wishes to ensure that all parents have a clear understanding of how they can meet their obligations under the Education and Training Reform Act 2006. Click on the link to understand how the new attendance processes will support your child/ren and families - Attendance Process for Families

    • Families are required to explain absences before or on the day of a student’s absence.
    • If a child is absent without communication to the school, a follow-up SMS will be sent on the day of absence. Text messages are sent daily at 10.00am and 3.00pm.
    • Daily SMS are sent home and an unexplained absence will initiate a Pink Slip given to the student for families to provide a valid reason for the absence.

    Families have 5 days in which to return the Pink Slip to Explain the Absence.


    Supporting students at risk to attend school. We would like our families to feel supported through this process, and as such the letters and reminders are designed to gain a full understanding of circumstances behind absenteeism. This provides the basis for the College and families to work together to improve student attendance. 

    Regardless of the type of absence (Approved or Unapproved) when a student’s attendance rate reaches less than 90% the student is considered at risk. At this point, the College will introduce interventions that will include a Student Engagement and Attendance Profile and/or a Student Support Group meeting with parent/guardian to develop an Individual Learning Plan and support from the College Allied Health Team.

    If you have any questions about the processes and the Attendance Policy, please contact the College on 9308 1144 or email via the Compass Parent Portal.

    Every Day Counts when it comes to getting the best Educational Outcomes for your child/ren.
