Schools policies and procedures

Schools policies relate to the day-to-day administration of NSW public schools.

New policy library launches on Wednesday 14 December

The NSW Department of Education is going through a digital transformation that will roll out over the coming months. You'll see a new library containing all department policies and related information in one place. This will make it easier to find policies on all your devices.

To find one or more policies in this section:

  • Browse this index page for lists of policy and implementation documents grouped under categories and topics headings.
  • Or, use the keyword search and A-Z list options in the right column.

View these policies via the Leading and Managing the School (LMS) categories.
