Attendance & Absence

Supporting School Attendance

It is important for children to attend school all day, every day. Only by their punctual, regular attendance can children make the most of educational opportunities.

Arriving at school and class on time:

●       gives students time to greet friends

●       ensures students receive the important learning activities timetabled early in the day

●       helps students learn the importance of punctuality

●       reduces classroom disruption

Absences from School

If your child is late, has been absent from school or is leaving early, you are required to inform the school and provide an acceptable reason (for example: sickness). Parents may send a note, email, telephone or complete an absence notification via the Sentral Parent Portal app. 

Students who arrive at school after 8.55am are to report to the Administration Office to collect a late slip, before going to class.

Parents who are collecting students during school hours need to go to the Administration Office. Classrooms are contacted, by the internal phone system, and students are sent to the Office to meet their parents.
