Attendance


WA regulations state that parents must ensure their child attends school. When children are enrolled in the school, admission and family cards are prepared. These include addresses and phone numbers in case of emergency. Please ensure that this information is kept up to date. Birth certificates and immunisation cards need to be sighted on enrolment. Legal custody arrangements need to be shown to the Principal and kept up to date.

 

Lateness

 

Students arriving at school significantly late or leaving early miss critical morning routines and learning activities. The school day begins at 8:40am students will be considered late if they are not in class by this time. If your child arrives after this time, parents must collect a late note with their child from the office and take it to the class teacher to explain the student’s lateness.

 

Leaving the school grounds


Children are not permitted to leave the school grounds. Before taking children out of the school during school hours, the accompanying adult is required to sign out their child at the front office.

 

Absences

  • If your child is absent from school please send a text message on 0447 889 384 detailing your child's name, class and reason for absence. A medical certificate may be required to explain prolonged absences.

  • If there are two days of unexplained absences, contact will be made by either the classroom teacher or administration asking for an explanation of the absences.

  • The school will meet with you to discuss any ongoing issues and an attendance plan to be put in place.
