Reporting an absence

In order to maximise the safety of our students, it is important that all Parents/Carers follow the procedures for reporting child absence from the school.

Procedure for reporting illness/absence:

  • Parents/Carers should contact the school before 8.00am to report a child’s absence. 
  • Estimate how long the absence will be.

Procedure for reporting Medical/Dental Appointments:

  • Make contact even if you child is coming later e.g.: after a doctor or dentist appointment, if they are not going to be in school by 8.15am.
  • Parents/Carers are advised where possible to make medical and dental appointments outside of the school day. Where this is not possible, pupils should attend school for part of the day.

All students requires a leave pass to attend an appointment or early departure. Parent/caregiver can contact the office (Phone 6583 1844) prior to the appointment to arrange a leave pass.  Alternatively, students can bring a note to the PD/H/PE staffroom prior to the commencement of school.  A leave pass will be printed to enable the student to exit the front gate.

If a pupil is recorded absent, with no reason, an SMS notification will be sent to the Parent/Carer. This service notifies you that your child is not in school and requests a response to determine the reason why.
