Complaints and Disputes

In 2013, all key stakeholders at Ocean Reef Primary School created a set of beliefs that form the basis of all interactions between home and school. Sometimes, however, disputes and complaints occur. This policy outlines the procedures available for making and resolving a complaint. Click here for more information about the policy

Attendance

We want to make sure all children get the best education possible which is why attending school every day is so important.

Western Australian law stipulates that all school-aged children must go to and attend school every day.

Homework

At Ocean Reef we encourage you to read with your child for 20 minutes nightly and work with them to practise their basic number facts. In the early years the students may have sight words or Words Their Ways word sorts. Any tasks sent home from the teacher will be purposeful and not set as a matter of routine just for the sake of setting home as evidence indicates that this does not impact upon student success.

Our students work very hard during the day and often ‘doing more of the same’ results in them resenting school.
