Attendance: 

Attendance is essential to progress. A pupil should not be absent without a good reason. It is not necessary to telephone the school if your child is sick, unless they are absent for more than three days. On the pupil's return to school, a signed note from a parent explaining the absence must be presented to the pupil's teacher. 

If a pupil is going to be absent for less than 10 days, no official form is required, just a signed note from parents/carer will be sufficient.

If a pupil is planning to be absent on holiday for between 10-100 days, parents are required to complete an "Application for Extended Leave - Travel" Form which must be submitted beforehand. 

If your child arrives late for school, you must bring them to the main office and wait for the administration staff to log the late arrival into the Compass school attendance module. Parents are not permitted to accompany children to the classroom once the school day has commenced. Children will be given a Late Arrival Card to present to the class teacher. Continual late arrivals will require
an interview with the Principal. Late arrivals not accompanied by a parent will
be marked as "Unjustified" and parents will be sent a letter asking them to 
explain.

If a child has to leave the school grounds during school hours, a note must be 

written and signed by you, the parent/caregiver, prior to the child's departure with a parent or other authorized adult. Otherwise, please complete a "Late Arrival/Early Departure Form" available from the school office before collecting your child. (For information on school procedures please consult the Parent Information Booklet.) Gates will be locked by 9:15 am:


The only entrance to the school after 9:15 am is the Cooney Street Administration Building via the School Office.
