Lincoln High School has about 1500 students and 100 staff and so it is necessary to have rules that enable us to focus on the things that we value: teaching, learning, and building positive relationships.
The school rules are based on the Lincoln High School values and students are expected to behave in such a way that the rights of students and staff are upheld.
In the classroom students are required to be on task, ensuring that teaching and learning take place without disruption.
During the school day students are to stay on the school grounds unless they have written permission from the school to leave. Year 13 students may leave the grounds when they do not have a class.
Students are expected to attend school unless they are sick or there is some other unavoidable reason. An explanation for any absence must be given to their Form Teacher.
The school Dress Code is to be followed. This requires students in Years 9 to 12 to wear correct school uniform. Year 13 students may wear appropriate mufti.
The possession, use, or other involvement with tobacco, alcohol or drugs is not permitted. If a student needs to take prescription drugs during the day they can be left at the School Office.
It is best that valuable items are not brought to school. However, if it is necessary to do so then these should be left at the School Office until required. The school does not accept responsibility for lost valuables that have not been left at the Office.
As a school we are committed to providing a safe and pleasant environment for all students and staff. This means that any form of bullying, harassment or violence is not acceptable. We have a Safe School Code that explains what bullying is and the responsibility students have to keep our school free from bullying.
We value accepting responsibility for one's own behaviour. If a school rule is broken the student is expected to be honest about their behaviour, accept the consequences and, where possible, work towards putting things right.
School rules apply at school, travelling to and from school, on school trips, or when students are associated with a school activity.
