Attendance

Missing school means your child misses out on vital information and maintaining learning routines. This can result in a loss of confidence and missing out on forming friendships.

Attendance is recorded each day. As a parent or carer you are responsible for ensuring your child attends school every day, unless your child:

  • has an unavoidable medical or dental appointment (preferably these should be made after school or during holidays)
  • is required to attend a recognised religious holiday
  • is required to attend an exceptional or urgent family circumstance (such as attending a funeral)
  • is sick, or has an infectious illness.

If you are having difficulty getting your child to attend school regularly, you can talk to the principal or the school counsellor.

If your child has to be absent from school for any reason, including arriving late or leaving early, please either tell your child’s teacher or the administration assistant, or advise by phone, email, or written note as soon as possible and within seven days.
