Children are required to attend school every day
We mark attendance on electronic registers. We will be following up on those children who are away, if we haven’t heard from you, as there are specific codes to classify absences. Absences will be recorded daily in the Attendance Bus Log located in the office.
Parents will be expected to contact the school to explain absences of their children on the day of absence by 9:00am. If your child travels on the bus please let the bus driver know they won’t be there.
The school will liaise with other agencies to follow up consistent unexplained or unjustified absences.
Taking children from school
It is sometimes necessary for parents to take children from school during school hours. Please advise the Principal and/or classroom teacher when the child is leaving. No child will be released into the custody of any person other than the parents without the prior consent of the parents.
