Late / Absence Procedures

Good attendance at school is crucial in helping all pupils achieve both academic and personal success. We ask parents to support the school by ensuring good attendance.

Parents/carers must make every effort to inform the school in advance of their child’s or ward’s absence from the school. If your child is going to be late, or absent from school, please notify the school office by 9:00am explaining the reason for absence of lateness.

The morning registration is open between 8:45am and 9:15am, thereafter registration is closed. In cases where a pupil absence has not been communicated to the school by 9:15am, the school secretary shall investigate the absence by making telephone contact with the parent or guardian. Pupils arriving at school any time after 9.15am must report immediately to the main school office reception on arrival so that their presence may be recorded.
