- When a student is absent from school and no message is received from home, the school will automatically text the parent via SIMS InTouch to ascertain the reason for the child’s absence
- To enable the school to authorise absence due to medical appointments (hospital, doctor, dentist, orthodontist or physiotherapist) parents/carers must provide evidence in the form of an appointment card or letter. This evidence should be given to the school attendance officer prior to the appointment. Where appointments occur during the school day, it is expected that the minimum time possible away from school will be taken. We do not expect children to miss an entire day of school for a local appointment.
- If reasons for absence are not provided, a letter is posted home to parents/carers with a reply slip. If no reason is provided within seven days, absences become unauthorised.
