Every Day Matters – 10 Point Plan To Improve Attendance
Late Arrivals – Students are expected to have a note from their parent or guardian explaining their late arrival and sign in at Student Services – Attendance officer
Parents will receive an SMS if their child is not in class morning and afternoon.
Appointments – If you know of the early leave requirement prior to your child starting school that day, please send a note with your child to be handed in to the Attendance Officer in Student Services on arrival. It is important that this is not handed directly to a classroom teacher. The Attendance Officer will create a ‘Leave Pass’ for your child which will allow him/her to be excused from class at the required time.
Explanation of Absence – If absent, a note of explanation or appointment letter is required on the day or return to school.
Please advise the school by using one of the following methods.
Students Unwell – If a student is feeling unwell, they need to go to Student Services where a phone call will be made home and arrangements made for their care.
Students should not use their mobile phone to phone parents directly.
