We have chosen to send all reports home in the post this term to ensure all caregivers receive this vital information on their child's learning, growth, future goals and engagement. We have also included the 2022 Naplan reports for learners in Y3, Y5, Y7, & Y9. We are committed to providing all caregivers with the essential information required to work collaboratively to ensure a successful outcome for all learners at our school. Whilst we prefer to send the information electronically, we understand that each family's circumstances are unique. We ask that those families wishing to receive a paper copy of future reports contact the school, and we will act upon your request. In the meantime, we hope that reading through the report will your child will provide insight into their achievements and information on the important next steps. If you wish to discuss your child's progress, please do not hesitate to contact the class teacher directly or the primary/secondary coordinator to discuss the issue.

Safe School Drop-Off and Pick-Up
30 Aug 2022
Staff have noticed a significant increase in parents dropping their children at school in unsafe zones, particularly on West Terrace opposite the staff carpark.
Quorn Area School has three designated drop-off and pick-up zones; the carpark next to the Skate Park on Railway Terrace allows students to safely use the Koala Crossing, Stokes Road and the Gymnasium carpark.
The staff carpark is not an entry point for students coming to school. It is also unsafe for children to cross the road at this point, especially if traffic is turning left off Railway Terrace.
For the safety of all road users, we ask that you please use the designated areas for all school drop-offs and pick-ups.
Mobile Phones - Update
26 Aug 2022
Quorn Area School is committed to ensuring a safe and effective learning environment for all learners. Recently our teachers have noticed a significant increase in mobile phone use and dependency across the secondary school, and they are concerned about the potential impact on learning. In response to this, we will be updating our mobile phone policy and introducing dedicated phone storage options in line with many schools across the state.
The first stage of this shift in policy will involve teachers collecting mobile phones at the beginning of each lesson from Monday, 29 August. Teachers will then store the phones in a locked room for the entirety of the lesson. Upon completion of the lesson, the teacher will return the phone to the learner.
We thank you for your continued support in ensuring a safe and healthy learning environment for all stakeholders.
If you need to reach your child during the day, you can contact the school on 86486101.
