First Day of Absence Calling

Of paramount importance to our school is the safety of the students and effective communication with parents and carers. We also acknowledge the importance of the Government’s ‘Every Child Matters’ agenda in promoting child safety, and providing peace of mind to parents and carers.

In order to address this area we will contact you directly if your child is marked absent for Period 1 in the morning. If your child is absent and you have not already notified us of this you may receive an email, text or voice message informing you of the absence and requesting that you either email, text or call the school to explain this. This will ensure that the reason for the absence is known as soon as possible and alert you if your child is not in school when they should be.
