We all want our students to get a great education, and the building blocks for a great education begin with students coming to school each and every day. Missing school can have a major impact on a child’s future – a student missing one day a fortnight will miss four full weeks by the end of the year.
There is no safe number of days for missing school – each day a student is absent puts them behind, and can affect their educational outcomes.
Coming to school every day is vital, but if for any reason your child must miss school, there are things we can do together to ensure they don’t fall behind. If your child must miss school speak with your classroom teacher and find out what work your child needs to do to keep up.
If you are having attendance issues with your child, please let the classroom teacher know or meet with our Student Welfare teachers Mr Runnalls or Mrs Emtsis, so we can work together to get your child to school every day.
