Public Schools and school closure
The NSW Department of Education's decisions regarding school closures do not apply to Independent schools.
The DoE makes centralised decisions based on its Risk Assessment Protocols. You can check what the DoE has decided for schools in your area by checking the Public Schools School Safety website.
Independent school Heads can make their own decisions depending on their Risk Assessment Protocols and the needs of their parent community.
However, it is important to know that Public School closures may affect transport routes.
