The school gates open at 8.40am. Parents have a legal duty to ensure that their child/ren attend school regularly. The school operates a ‘first day contact’ policy. If for any reason your child is absent from school it is important that you contact the school by telephone that day to inform us. If you do not telephone in, we will make every effort to contact you to ensure that your child is safe and accounted for, this includes undertaking a home visit where necessary. It remains an important facet of communication and attendance records that parents send in a note or speak to the teacher to inform them as to why their child/ren were absent from school.
