Absent from School

Please notify the office or child’s teacher if you believe your child will be absent due to illness for periods longer than one day. A note is also a legal requirement - so please send a note to school with your child when they are well enough to return.

Research has found that the rate of absenteeism in schools has a significant impact on student learning. Part of the research findings indicate that over 11 days of absence from school in a single year may have an impact on schooling and student learning. This is particularly so if a high absence rate is repeated each year.
