Rules and policies


Our processes for managing behaviour can be found in the Marshall Road State School's Responsible behaviour plan (PDF, 2.45MB).  The following policies are also included for your information.

Leaving school grounds

Students are not permitted to leave the school grounds during school hours without permission of the Principal. Students may leave the grounds during the lunch recess provided they have written permission from their parents (responsibility then rests with the parents). Permission to leave the grounds is a privilege and this will be withdrawn should behaviour be inappropriate.

For parents collecting or returning a child during school hours e.g. for a doctor’s appointment, a sign-out and in book is available at the office.  No parent/carer is to collect students from the classroom.  Students who are being collected need to be collected from the office.

See maps and transport for school drop-off and pick-up procedures.

See school hours for rules regarding drop-off and pick-up times.


Regular attendance at school is necessary if children are to learn to their full potential and is a requirement of the Education Act.  If your child is absent, please send a brief note of explanation to the class teacher the next day or please contact administration directly on the dedicated Student Absence Line (07) 3422 8277.  If your child is likely to be absent for a longer period, please advise the school.

If your child attends Kidszone, especially after school, please also contact them if your child is sick or absent so they don’t waste valuable time trying to locate your child.


Medicines may be prescribed for administration during school hours only when absolutely necessary. The following guidelines must be observed:-

  • School staff will only give oral medication where there is a written request from a parent/caregiver accompanied by written advice from a medical practitioner. A form for this purpose is available from the school office.

  • The medication must be in its original container with the original pharmacy label showing the student's name, dosage and time to be taken.

  • School staff will not administer over-the-counter medication, including analgesics, unless it is in the original, labelled container and written advice from the parent/caregiver and medical practitioner are provided.

Students are not to have drugs of any type (including Panadol or equivalent) in their possession while they are at school. Asthma puffers however, are permitted.
