Attendance

Did you know...

It is widely recognised that students need to attend school on a regular basis to gain the maximum benefit from schooling in order to optimise their life opportunities.

The School Education Act 1999 requires compulsory aged students, to attend school, or participate in an educational program of a school.

Although there is no legal requirement in the School Education Act 1999 for pre and post-compulsory aged students to enrol in a school, there is an expectation that once enrolled, students will attend on a regular basis, and positive attendance patterns should be fostered with all students by schools.

Student Absences

Regular attendance is vital to student progress.

Parents are legally obliged to:

  • Ensure regular, punctual student attendance; and

  • Promptly provide a verbal or written explanation for student absences.

 

In accordance with the Department of Education’s Student Attendance Policy, it is a requirement that an explanation of a student’s absence is provided within three school days from the start of the absence.

Students who need to leave the school grounds for any reason, must have a note from their parent or guardian and be signed out/in through the school office.
