Every Minute Matters

Our attendance target is 97% and regular attendance is a major factor that contributes to a child’s progress. We strongly recommend that your child only misses school if they are unwell.

Absences for family holidays will not be authorised in any circumstances. If your child is absent through illness it is helpful if you can telephone the school (preferably before 9.30am). There is an answer phone where you can leave a message. If you have not been able to notify the school sooner, then please send a note on the child’s return or after three days.

Children who attend school feel connected to the community, develop important social skills and friendships that prepares them for a fantastic future.

Encouraging regular attendance is one of the best ways you can prepare your child for success, both in school and in life.
