Attendance at School
Children who have reached the age of 6 years are expected by law to attend Primary School. It is also a legal requirement to explain all absences with a valid reason.
If your child is absent:
It is essential that children are at school NO LATER than 8:45am. It is upsetting to the child and disruptive to the class if your child is late. Children who arrive late must be signed in and collect a late pass from the office.
Children are NOT SUPERVISED before 8.30am or after 3.30pm and should not be at school before or after those times.
Parents are expected to collect Prep children from their classrooms (external door).
Children Leaving School Early
No child is to leave the school ground during school hours for any reason UNLESS signed out by the parent (or authorized person presenting written permission). The “Sign Out” iPad (at the office) must be completed before a child will be released by a teacher. This is to ensure we know the whereabouts of all children at all times. All children must be “signed in” on the iPad upon return to school or upon late arrival. Please NEVER collect children during recess or lunchtime, without signing them out on the iPad, even if the classroom teacher has been notified.
Please make every effort to make appointments outside of regular school hours or as close to the end of the school day as possible.
