Parent Information Booklet
Everything you need to know about Cranbourne South Primary School is right here:
CSPS is listed as a BARR (Bushfire at Risk Register) school.
Schools at high risk of bushfire are placed on the Department’s Bushfire At-Risk Register. Inclusion on this register is a trigger for the school to pre-emptively close on days declared Code Red in their Bureau of Meteorology district.
Code Red Days
Schools that have been identified as being at high fire risk will close on days determined Code Red by the Emergency Management Commissioner.
Where possible, four to seven days notice of a planned closure will be provided. Parents and carers should expect that in some instances fewer than four days notice may be provided.
Once a Code Red day has been determined by the Emergency Management Commissioner this decision will not change – regardless of any changes in the weather forecast. This will help limit confusion and help your family plan for how your children will be cared for when our school is closed.
When a school is closed due to a Code Red day determination, no staff will remain on site and all out-of-school care programs (including vacation, before and after school programs) will not operate.

This process relates to all events, including:
- Camps – Each year CSPS facilitates two camps per year, generally for 3 days/2 nights.

- Registrations will be ranked based on:
