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. Parents/carers need to inform the school on the first day of any absence by giving a reason for the absence and a likely date to return. Please inform the school by one of the following options (only one of the options is required):

If your child has an unexplained absence, you will receive an SMS notification.

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 of 8.30 am – 2.30 pm.
