Pupils are required to be at school whenever it is open for instruction. If children are sick or have a good reason to be absent, it is very important to inform the school. Attendance is checked at the start of each day. We ring parents as a safety precaution if their child is not accounted for. All children who arrive after 8.50am must report to the office, to be marked present. In cases of repeated lateness, the school will contact parents.

If you wish to take your child out of class during term time for a family trip or holiday, approval must be sought from the School Principal.
