What if my child has a hospital appointment?
If your child is going to be off for a medical appointment, please let us know in advance ensure that you provide the office with a copy of the appointment letter or text message confirming the appointment. Routine appointments (such as dental check-ups, opticians etc.) should be made out of school hours.
What happens if my child doesn't attend school?
We monitor the attendance of all of our children. If your child is frequently absent from school, we will do our best to support you with strategies to ensure your child can attend. If you are struggling to get your child into school, or find that you’re frequently late, please speak to someone in school as there is support we can give you. We also meet every term with the Education Welfare Officer (EWO).
If your child is persistently absent and strategies we put in place with you do not improve your child's attendance, you may be required to attend a meeting with the EWO. If further improvements are not made, then a fine may be issued.
