Absence and Childhood Illness

Absence from school

If a child is absent from school the parent must follow these procedures: 

• Contact the school on the first day of absence before 9.30 am.

The school has an answer phone available to leave a message if nobody is available to take your call, or you may call into school personally and speak to the office staff

• Contact the school on every further day of absence, again before 9.30 am

• Ensure that your child returns to school as soon as possible and you provide any medical evidence, if requested, to support the absence.


Please refer to school attendance policy.
