Parents\Guardians are legally required to ensure their child attends school every day or to provide an explanation for their child's absence. They have an obligation to notify the school as soon as possible on the day of the absence using the school’s preferred method (Compass) or inform the school in advance of any upcoming absences.
We request that Parents\Guardians complete an absence via Compass where possible.
If you are unsure how to complete this, please find the guide on Compass by clicking on the Community Icon \ School Documentation \ Parent Information \ Compass \ Compass Guide for Parents and Families
A child missing one day a fortnight will miss four weeks in a year, and more than a year of school by year 10. It is important that children develop regular attendance habits at an early age.
