It is important that you advise us by phone when your child is absent from school for whatever reason.
This needs to be followed by a written explanation in the student diary or on notepaper.
Please do not send your child to school if unwell. We do not have the facilities to adequately care for sick children.
If it is necessary for your child to be absent from school for an extended period of time, say, for a family holiday, please apply to the Principal for an exemption from attendance for that time.
It is very important that students arrive on time for school each day. Students may arrive at 8.30am when teachers are on duty and enter their classrooms at 8.45am when the siren sounds. This enables the day to get off to a good start. The roll book is also marked at this time and teachers are required to record all episodes of lateness. Children who need to be at school prior to 8.30am must be booked into our Before School Care Programme.
