Student Supervision 

Student safety at Grovedale College is our highest priority and the safe and appropriate supervision of students is an important element of our duty of care to students. Part of this duty is ensuring parents and students are aware of our student supervision arrangements before and after school.

Before school: School grounds are supervised at 8:30am until the commencement of class

After school: School grounds are supervised until 3:30pm

Students on school grounds outside these times will not be supervised (unless they are attending a supervised extracurricular activity).

Parents/carers are requested to ensure that students do not attend school outside of these supervised times unless they are attending a pre-arranged supervised activity (i.e. sports practice).

For a copy of our school’s Yard Duty and Supervision Policy contact the school administration office. This policy includes Grovedale College’s student supervision arrangements across the school day, including before and after school.
