If your child is absent from school we ask you to phone in on the morning of the first day of absence and send in a letter when your child returns, giving the reason for absence. Any unexplained absences are followed up with a phone call on the first day of absence so we are aware of why the child is away. We are required to keep very detailed records, and unexplained absences must be marked as ‘unauthorised’. Children whose attendance is causing concern will receive a letter from the school. The Educational Welfare Officer monitors children’s absences and works with families when attendance becomes an issue.
If your child has a medical appointment during school hours then please send a note in advance.
The school day starts with registration at 8.45am. If for any reason your child arrives late please sign them in at the office.
