This page contains links to policies & forms available for download as well as information about school procedures for parents.
Other Alberton Primary School policies are available on request from the school office.
If your child is absent from school for any reason, you must provide a written explanation or phone the school. If your child/ children are unwell, they are far better to remain at home until well enough to attend school.
Alberton Primary School is serviced by three school buses. The arrangements for your child are recorded with the bus coordinating school when you register for bus travel. If, for some reason, you wish to change this procedure then please let us know in writing, by phone or by informing the office staff in person.
At 3.30pm each day, children travelling on buses assemble in their groups at the bus area. Teachers supervise and help them to get on the correct bus. Behaviour on the buses is expected to be of the highest standard.
To enhance the school programs, teachers arrange for the children to be taken out of the school on extra curricula activities. Written approval will need to be given for all excursions involving buses or private cars. Students must wear full school uniform on all school excursions.
We encourage parents to ensure that their child’s clothing is named. Clothing that is found and has a name will be returned to its owner; however, other clothing will be housed in the lost property stand which can be accessed through the front office. After a time it will be cleaned and placed in the second hand uniform shop.
Parking spaces are limited at the school. The parking areas are signposted and run along the northern fence of the school (Thomson Street). This area enables parents to drop off or pick up their children and keeps the bus loop free for bus arrival and departure. When picking up your children at the end of the day we request that parents collect their children from inside the gate. Student safety is of the highest priority and parent cooperation is vital.
Children are discouraged from bringing private property to school as this causes great distress when these items are broken or lost. The Department of Education and Training (DET) and the school are not responsible for any damage or loss to private property. Children are not allowed to bring any electronic games, listening devices or mobile phones to school. These items are not insured.
Our school uniform colours are navy and gold for all children in Prep to Grade 6. Students in Grade 6 have the option of wearing a personalised Grade 6 rugby top. The wearing of our school uniform is compulsory. A wide brimmed hat must be worn at all times when outside in Terms 1 and 4. The office has a range of new and pre-loved clothing for sale at reasonable prices.
Visitors and parent helpers are required to sign in at the front office of the school where the Visitor's Book is located.
