Absence from school

We ask for your fullest co-operation in seeing that your child attends school each day. Absence from school places hardship on the pupil. It is not necessary to telephone the school to notify absences. A written note explaining an absence is required.

Under Department of Education regulations, absence from school should be for illness, or medical or dental appointments.

Absences for all other purposes are generally discouraged. Students are expected to attend school for the entire day, ie 8.50 a.m. – 3.00 p.m. It is policy that assignments or worksheets are not prepared in advance for children going on holidays, although teachers will indicate areas that will be covered while the child is away.

You are able to notify us via the school app of your child’s absence. Alternatively, please contact the school office.
