About Us

Sydney Distance Education Primary School (SDEPS) is a distance education facility catering for Kindergarten to Year 6 students who need to learn through distance education.

The majority of students are temporarily travelling within Australia or overseas for family holidays or work commitments. Some families temporarily relocate for employment opportunities, missionary or humanitarian relief, or simply for lifestyle choices and experiences. Our school also caters to students with medical or additional support needs.

Our school is governed by the same policies that apply to all NSW schools. Our programs which cover the Learning Areas from the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) syllabuses (https://syllabus.nesa.nsw.edu.au).
